This year the festival is between 19–23rd of June 2013.
We are a Non – governmental, non – profit, organization, working in the fields of art and culture, towards establishing collaborative connections with other international artists organizations and artists (creative people) themselves, with the aim of working with the means of art and cultural exchange, ideas, creating artistic communities, residencies with art for social change practices and art centers in Bulgaria as a base for free spiritual zones.
The goals of the organization are development of creative industries in the region, support for cultural diversity, development of regional cultural market, and support for mobility of people, ideas and works.
