WHEN: 2015 (JULY, AUGUST AND NOVEMBER)
“Cultural Embassies in Kapana” is a pilot project with an idea to give a first time opportunity to the foreign cultural institute consulates to show in Plovdiv some of their cultural events. The institutions that responded to the call were: The Embassy of Belgium, with the exhibition of Belgian comics artist Marc Sleen; the Polish Institute with an exhibition of art posters and screenings of contemporary Polish plays; and the Czech Center with an exhibition of contemporary Czech design. The project presented to the Plovdiv audience three totally new cultural highlights; it offered new ways to establish a dialogue with these countries; it encouraged the popularization of contemporary projects included in their event calendar outside the capital and posed the question of establishing permanent consulates in Kapana as part of the idea to give Kapana – Creative Industries District an international dimension.
With the financial support of Plovdiv 2019 Municipal Foundation.
