Time for Reflection and Celebration

By Yoana Stoyanova | Project Leader

Hello from Iceland
Hello from Iceland

Hello, dear Baba supporter!

We hope you are well and thriving!

 

The last few months have been quite devoted to the much needed time for reflection and finishing our last activities for the project "Revitalizing the villages through creative activites". As we have shared with you in the past year, it included: 6 artistic residencies, renovation of 6 spaces in the very same villages, cultural events (playback theater, contemporary circus performances and local brass bands), exhibitions and workshops and a big 2-day international forum in Vidin with the topic of how to improve the access to culture of small settlements. You probably wonder where did the celebration part go?

Well... to ICELAND! We had the chance, as part of this shared project Revitalizing the villages through creative activites", which was made possible thanks to the generous support of the FM of EEA grants 2014-2021 and the countries Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. We visited our local partner Gullkistan Center for Creativity, but more about this adventure - next time!

Now it's the time for the final effort to close this cycle of urban-rural co-creation - a handbook, which will guide you though the process of organizing an artistic 1-month Baba Residence in a village. Exciting, m?

 

In the spirit of our reflection and summarizing of what's has been achieved, I continue with a few visual sharings from our last year:

HERE you can have a glimpse of the newly renovated spaces in 6 villages and some of the events that have already happened in them.

HERE you can fo thorugh the last posts and meet the artists and the villages, which were part of our last year's urban-rural creativity and love.

HERE you can watch all the presentations and conversations from our 2-day international forum in Vidin in 2023.

HERE you can find the newly illustrated map of Baba Residence during the years - since 2014. We've summed up some of the warm tracks we left in 19 villages across Bulgaria.

HERE are the artistic results from our 6 artistic residencies in 6 villages in Northwestern Bulgaria this year.

 

 

Be well and please,

let us know if you want to meet us also in person this year,

Yoana and the Ideas Factory team
