The cross-border cooperation programme was launched in 2016 to promote mobility among cultural actors to disseminate their work between the Basque Country on both sides of the border and Navarra. Thanks to this collaboration, several projects and collaborations have seen the light in recent years revolving around promotion, literature and visual arts.

In 2016, EKE and the Etxepare Basque Institute, joined forces with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine - Basque Country - Navarre Euroregion to launch the programme. The aim is to raise the profile and facilitate mobility among creators from the French Basque region, Euskadi and Navarra in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, and to promote cross-border cooperation. Thanks to this collaboration, numerous projects in the fields of literature and visual arts have emerged in recent years.
