  • to encourage the European partnership in the youth field
  • to organize international art exhibitions and events that gather young talented people that work in the art fields.
  • to publish for the project a book called “Alternatives”
  • to popularize arts and culture as a whole in Bulgaria and Europe.
  • to support young people in the local community and help them learn more about the EU and encourage them to take part in more programs and activities organized by European Youth Programs and Initiatives
