The focus in our work is children and young people. Since 2008, we have been developing a program in which, through arts and crafts, we are provoking creativity and encouraging the development of the participants. We attract in the summer months, young people and children from Bulgaria and the world. Since 2011, we have been working on a program to support youth initiatives, where young people receive funding and supervision to implement their projects after training and project idea protection.
We support the talents of Bulgaria. From 2007 until 2012 we organized the International Ethno-jazz Festival in the Rhodope Mountains. Over 380 artists, from 23 countries, took part in the festival. We have organized more than 30 workshops, visited by over 400 people – active participants and at least as many as observers. We have helped 7 tours of Bulgarian musicians outside the country.
From 2013, we work in Veliki Preslav to help archaeologists and museum workers in archaeological excavations in the old capital of Preslav. Promoting the city as a place for historical and cultural tourism by working with local people to develop their capacity.
Since 2011, we have launched a program to support youth initiatives where, after training and project idea protection, young people receive funding and supervision to implement their projects. From 2012, we are working in partnership on several capacity development programs for our teams and collaborators. We share experience with colleagues from Europe and Africa so that we can provide both training services and a place to practice (at home and abroad).
