Children from Stolipinovo take part in a creative environment
The City Gallery of Fine Arts, the State Opera, the Ivan Vazov National Library and the Regional Ethnographic Museum are included in the "pARTnership". The initiative is organized by the Plovdiv 2019 Foundation and is part of the project "All Together - For Better Education and Health" with leading organization - Plovdiv Municipality. From November 2018 the institutions will carry out creative and educational activities for children from the two schools in Stolipinovo - Primary School "Naiden Gerov" and Primary School "Kiril Nektariev".
The "pARTnership" initiative
"pARTnership" is an educational process in a real creative environment that aims to stimulate the use of art and culture as a means of communication. The children will take part in 12 different events that will be held until June 2019. Groups of pupils from the first to fourth grades are formed who will visit the institutions and will participate in the cultural program. They will be accompanied by teachers and educational mediators working on the project.
Children will be able to get acquainted with complex subjects and develop curiosity about art, as well as discover their talents in different spheres. "pARTnership" provokes the understanding of the professions in the cultural sphere and encourages children to create. The four institutions involved develop special children's programs and create sustainable and inspiring relationships with the participants. Their long experience in working with children's audiences ensures that community activities are beneficial.
Beginning of the initiative
The initiative starts on 28 November from the Old Town on a programme prepared by the City Art Gallery - Plovdiv. On December 3, there will be a meeting on the stage of the State Opera - Plovdiv where the children will meet the artists and will look behind the scenes of the multimedia show "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", based on the classical tale of the Brothers Grimm.
The Plovdiv 2019 Foundation is a partner of Plovdiv Municipality under the project "All Together - for Better Education and Health" under the Programme for Encouraging Social Inclusion of Roma and Other Vulnerable Groups of a Bulgarian-Swiss cooperation programme. This is a long-term project with activities for the period from 2016 to 2019 aimed at the educational and health integration of Roma and other vulnerable groups living in the territory of Stolipinovo in Plovdiv. More information on the previous project activities can be found here.
