“The Culture through the Objective of the Others”


The project "The Culture through the Objective of the Others” is carried out by Association Culturi (Bulgaria) and Bulgarian-Spanish Association “Cyril and Methodius” (Spain).

It is an international exchange of young people interested in photography, funded by the Youth in Action Programme of the European Commission. The project is implemented with the support of Nikon, Bulgaria.

 

The main goal of the project is to make the participants familiar with each other’s culture. They are challenged to look through the lenses of their camera for the cultural differences and will try to overcome them by the means of interactive methods and team work.

 

17 young people from Bulgaria and Spain took part in a Photographic week during 14-21 of August. All of them were interested in photography and were highly motivated to participate in international initiatives. They explored together different cultural routes in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria and had their interactive sessions in the Red House Centre for Culture and Debate. The participants took part in the vigil for the feast of the Assumption of St. John of Rila in the Monastery in Rila (17-18 August). The international group also attended the Annual Assembly of the White Brotherhood (19 August), where the young people made nice shots of the Paneurhythmy – a Bulgarian cultural event, which strives to be included in the list of non-material world cultural heritage of UNESCO.

 

The promoters of the project expect the following outcomes for the youngsters:
