From 13 to 17 September NEF ‘13 Centuries of Bulgaria’ organises the 4th International Youth Art Festival ‘River of Tolerance’ under the patronage of UNESCO. For the first time the Festival will be held online. We shall create a ‘space’ for free sharing and exchange, where we can meet artists from the Balkans, including Croatia, in the fields of graphics, photography and the digital arts. The main theme, ‘The Shared Art of the Balkans—Traditions and Contemporaneity’, reflects the goals and objectives of the event and corresponds to UNESCO’s current priorities.
As an event, the Festival will stimulate and enrich the cultural exchange between higher art schools from the Balkan states. With the art they create, young artists and their teachers will express and convey their message on important topics and values in the changing world in which we live.
