FARA 2017 - Eighteenth Festival of the Bulgarian Association of Communication Agencies
The 18th edition of FARA 2017 - Festival of the Bulgarian Association of Communication Agencies has started. This year's edition is in partnership with the Plovdiv 2019 Foundation and will be held from 15 to 17 June 2017 at the Boris Hristov House of Culture.
The leading advertising agencies in Bulgaria take part in the festival. FARA is the largest event in the advertising industry in Bulgaria. The participants from the industry can keep up-to-date the best practices and to exchange experiences and ideas. That is why this year's edition of FARA is dedicated to the topic "Intersections". The festival is not only a competition, but also a crossroads of business and imagination, lecture and dialogue, experts and beginners.
Since last year, FARA has increasingly focused on its lecture and workshop part, and this year the program relies more on international speakers to show a different perspective on the present and future of communications.
The programme of the 18th edition also includes an open exhibition of works of art by authors working in advertising and communication agencies in Bulgaria. The exhibition will take place at the City Art Gallery in Plovdiv and will be open to visitors from 16 to 28 June. Its official opening will be on June 16 at 19:00.
This year the prestigious forum is in partnership with Plovdiv 2019 and aims to increase the capacity of the cultural sector. "Plovdiv 2019" gives the opportunity to 20 Plovdiv artists to attend the lecture panels and to participate in a specialized workshop at a preferential price.
