Lovech, Bulgaria/Klearchos Kapoutsis

Within the framework of its global initiative “Culture: A Bridge to Development”, UNESCO is supporting, in co-operation with the Balkanika Foundation, a new regional encounter on the iconic bridge of Lovech, Bulgaria. It will feature artistic events and round tables between writers, artists and policy makers on the new arts scene in South-East Europe, as well as on the role of cities in shaping a new agenda for creativity and cultural innovation.

This event is the second of a series planned for the region, with a view to provide spaces for sub-regional and regional exchange among various cultural and political actors.
