By the way, Euroregions often have fonds for cross border activities
with regard to cultural affairs. Maybe nice for WLM conventions in
border regions. As far as I know the Euregion where I live in (EUREGIO
Gronau) has problems to spend its money for those cultural activities
including Germans and Dutch.

Kind regards
