Provocateur of the month


It is great that Sofia increasingly discusses how to stimulate the development of the cultural stage of the city. The eventual selection of Sofia for European capital of culture would be a huge impulse in this direction. It is important however to talk also about what do we understand when saying “Sofia’s cultural stage.” I believe there are things to add up to this discourse.

Discussion I - Innovative cultural events: development prospects


The main objective of the discussions is the inclusion of all stakeholders in the preparation of strategic guidelines for development of culture and creativity in the Metropolitan Municipality regarding the candidacy of Sofia as a European Capital of Culture in 2019
