Dear friends and future partners,
In this letter we present an project idea under the
CREATIVE EUROPE programme,
Call for Proposals EACEA 32/2017: Support for European cooperation projects 2018
2018 is declared European Year of Cultural Heritage. In this regard, we have focused our attention on one of the world's oldest crafts - pottery. We are from Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. The town was a medieval capital and here the remnants of medieval Tarnovo can still be seen. The ceramics of that period is known as Royal Ceramics. It was made by special technique, shape, drawing and colours. It was designed only for the most distinguished citizens.
Nowadays, only two craftsmen deal with this type of ceramics.
We aim, firstly, to provoke people's interest in it because even our fellow citizens do not recognize it and involve it in our work with children and students from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the local university. Secondly, we are planning to create, in the area of one of the major historical sites in our city, a Ceramic Center, where visitors will be able to make ceramic items of this kind.
That is why it is of utmost importance to us to have a partnership with countries and organizations that have practical experience and interest in this art and manage to self-finance themselves through it.
Such a partnership will involve:
We need to consider the requirements of the Programme.
Due to the specifics of our organization, if it is identified as the leading one, the following framework of the project is suggested:
