Project Report | Oct 12, 2023
Busy summer of 2023

GlobalGivingSep 27, 2023Dear Friend,

You subscribed to email updates from Help children in Varna access free art courses by School of arts for unprivileged children Dedal, a project on GlobalGiving. Here's the unedited update from the field:

Busy summer of 2023
By Lyuben Denev - Coordinator


"No pressure" exhibition

For a span of four months, students at the school dedicated their time and creativity to photography and digital arts projects, culminating in the creation of their very own exhibition hosted at the school. Guided by the challenge of shaping their artworks around a predetermined theme.

Beyond the creative aspect, the exhibition also exposed the artists to the practical side of the art world. They gained firsthand experience in organizing an exhibition, which involved curating and arranging the artworks for display.

 

Gabrovtsi plein air

In June, a group of volunteers and students from the school came together for a 6-day plein air experience in Gabrovtsi, a tranquil village nestled in the Bulgarian mountains. During this immersive retreat, participants had the chance to deeply connect with the natural surroundings, honing their ability to observe intricate details, textures, and the nuances of light and color. Throughout their stay, the youth received valuable instruction in land art, facilitated by local artists from Gabrovtsi, and actively engaged in various land art workshops led by the renowned Bulgarian artist Dan Tenev.

By creating artwork in nature, the participants developed their problem-solving skills, spatial awareness, and attention to detail. They also had to learn teamwork and collaboration, fostering social interaction and the development of interpersonal skills.

 

Q-Jazz Festival 

2023 was the second year of the new Q-Jazz festival, aimed at young and unfamiliar musitians. Over 20 volunteers from Dedal art school participated in the organisation and development of the festival. By doing so and depending on their role, volunteers developed a wide range of skills, including event planning, crowd management, customer service, and technical skills related to sound and lighting equipment.

They got to meet and network with all artists, industry professionals and fellow volunteers who share their interests. This networking opened doors to future opportunities in the music and event industry.
 



The Quarantine Film Festival 

“The Quarantine” is an international short film festival aimed at popularizing young and unknown authors among professional filmmakers’ circles. The festival is organized on completely voluntary basis, there are no screening fees and nobody receives any payment. This year marked the ninth edition of the festival.

Over 60 volunteers, most of which are students at Dedal art school, participate each year in the festival’s organization. This requires extensive teamwork, and volunteers had the chance to collaborate with diverse groups of people. This experience enhanced their teamwork and leadership abilities.

The volunteers contributed to the cultural enrichment of the community and helped to create memorable moments for festival attendees. Volunteering is a way to give back and support the arts and cultural events.



Clean to screen

Volunteers and students from Dedal organized and participated in an annual one day beach clean up. Together with “Friends of the sea“ sea club and local fishermen, they cleand the Quarantine beach and the area around it.

By engaging the youth in the beach clean-up, we raised awareness about the importance of environmental conservation and the impact of pollution on natural ecosystems. Youth volunteers learned firsthand about environmental issues and gained a sense of responsibility for the planet.
