First call for project proposals under Outcome 2 “Access to Arts and Culture Improved”
Short description of the project:
The project activities are focused on expanding the opportunities for employment, social inclusion and entrepreneurship based on local, traditional historical values, as well as expanding the opportunities for implementation of modern and contemporary techniques for cultural impact and improving access to folklore values of different ethnicities and peoples.
Activities are planned for identification, transfer, adaptation and implementation of innovative Norwegian practices and business models in the field of folk art, life and crafts. Municipal and non-governmental organizations - included in the partner consortium - will transfer Norwegian practices and exchange experiences to organize quality and wide-ranging initiatives, events and happenings, as well as improve access to local folklore and cultural products and tourism.
The created products, as a result of the transfer, adaptation and implementation of innovative practices, have the potential to assist all stakeholders in their preparation for organizing and implementing events, including local, traditional folk art and crafts from Bulgaria and Norway, and in parallel upgrade with modern techniques and technologies for expressive impact and aesthetic reception.
