SOFIA PAPER ART FEST 2017
SAVE NATURE THROUGH ART
The Amateras Foundation, founders of the Foundation, herewith present the conception of the seventh edition of Sofia Paper Art Fest 2017 for the period May 10 – June 6, 2017. The project is dedicated to Sofia and its transformation into the capital city of artistic creativity. Sofia Paper Art Fest (SPAF) is a multi-disciplinary forum of innovation not only in Bulgaria. Every edition of the Fest is focused on the entire strategy of development of this long-term project which inspires artists in various artistic fields. Annually, the Fest presents new ideas corresponding to the European criteria of art and culture. It focuses on the priorities of the Strategy of the Sofia 2013-2023 program — SOFIA – THE CAPITAL CITY OF CREATIVITY. SPAF has no analogue in the world and instigates interest in professional art circles throughout the world. During the six years of its existence SPAF has proved to be an innovation and a forum for high achievements. It has also won public recognition and the respect of a number of professional international organizations. In 2015 SPAF received the EUROPEAN LABEL of EFFE – the World Festival Association – and is now recognized by the international festivals as a noteworthy representative of Bulgaria.
In 2017 the focus will be on cultural dialogue and the presentation of professional networks and societies in Sofia, as well as on the presentation of SPAF collections abroad on the occasion of the EU Presidency of Bulgaria in 2018,as well as on joint expositions in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Paper art is a new artistic sphere which brings together traditions and modern trends, innovations and high achievements. SPAF has inspired many international artists to make a new artistic approach. Many world-famous museums and galleries have displayed the artworks of these artists. This has drawn the attention of art critics world-wide. Thus, it is no coincidence that SPAF was awarded the EFFE European Label which created a place for the Fest in the European festival group.
