LET’S HEAR EACH OTHER - a project about literature and art in public spaces that aims at the popularization of literary portraits for ten elderly people written by famous Bulgarian writers.

Based on a series of conversations with each participant, the authors - Nadia Radulova, Georgi Gospodinov, Maria Doneva, Dostena Lavern, and Virginia Zaharieva - write a short work in genre poetry or microfixion, which will be published in three formats: online, audio and print. The stories are available in Bulgarian language only, after 8th October 2021 in the gallery of the event.

The project includes

  • the production of literary portraits, which will be exhibited on the International Day of Elderly People - postponed for 2022, due to the current regulations for public events;
  • audio portraits on the Bulgarian National Radio - planned to start from 1 October 2021;
  • digital portraits 
  • workshop on memoirs live in Plovdiv - postponed for April 2022, due to the current regulations for public events;
  • online on an interactive platform created for the needs of the interdisciplinary residency SPA, part of the official programme of Plovdiv – European Capital of Culture 2019.

Partner of the project is the Club of the retired "Centralen", Plovdiv.

The project belongs to Elisabeth Kostova Foundation and is part of the Legacy Programme of Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture.
