Team Plovdiv 2019

The structure of the Plovdiv 2019 Foundation organises the team into  several departments according to their field of activity and mastery, thus covering artistic and production management and development, marketing and promotion, international and public relations, administrative, financial and the legal fields.

The implementation of an initiative as amazing as the project European Capital of Culture project requires a team that is ready to meet the challenges of the road, to offer expert solutions and creative approaches, to work hands-on, to communicate with all partners, to constantly cultivate and to pass on the baton to the next engaged and loving :)

The Artistic Director and the CEO share one level in the management structure in the entity, which guarantees the equality of the priorities and activities in the team. The structure of the team is set and follows the description in the bid book and the structure of the programme. Four project managers and the experts in the artistic team are responsible for the four platforms in the programme of Plovdiv 2019. Each project in the programme has its coordinator from the team of the Foundation.

The Plovdiv 2019 Foundation also works closely with external collaborators - financial controllers, legal advisors, monitoring experts, curators, translators, photographers and designers..

An important aim of the artistic team is the development of the volunteering programme which has a specific coordinator, working in full collaboration with the people responsible for the projects and with the production team. 

The offices of Plovdiv 2019 are on the fourth and fifth floors in SKLAD - the ex tobacco warehouse in the Tobacco City - 16 Ekzarh Yossif Str. You can schedule an appointment with the representatives of the team on the following emails and telephones:
