“Dance with me” is one of the new inspirations for the Ideas factory! From 11th to 20th of June in Karlovo city, 29 young and active people from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Israel, Greece, Georgia and the Netherlands, will experiment with techniques of the modern dance and will find out how to use them in their work with groups, where the student is in the center on the process. In this training there will be group rehearsals, discussions and open workshops, attracting local young people, and a few performances in the city, and why not outside it too?

The “Ideas Factory” project is financed by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
“PRICE space” is the newest initiative of the Ideas Factory, born from the desire to share what we have learned from our participation in the project PRICE (Promoting Responsible Investment and Commerce in Europe). Our first meeting gathered people of different professions, brought together by their interest in fair trade and ethical finance.
But what does “ethical finance” mean? In order not to be empty worded, Vyara Ivanova attended he meeting – a financier by profession and a “(ideas) factory worker” by heart, part of the team of Price project in Bulgaria, who explained what ethical financing is and we also discussed different global examples like the work of Banca Ethica, platforms for crowd funding, SIB (social impact bonds) and others. If all this sounds too abstract to, but you would like to see ethical banks in Bulgaria and production getting to you by fair trade, feel invited to come! The next meeting will be held on the 9th of February (awaiting confirmation), you can find more information and state your participation on the Facebook space of PRICE.
“New year – new adventures!” – That’s what we told ourselves and ended up in Croatia! From the 6th to the 15th of January in maritime Rijeka, a part of our team took part in the project “Play Away!”. And we were not disappointed! The organizers from Syncro – Synergy Croatia had prepared one unforgettable experience for all 27 participants from 6 countries – Croatia, Poland, The Czech Republic, Italy, Cyprus and Bulgaria.
We discussed topics, crafted, managed to unfold ourselves, created provocations, realized what we want and how to achieve it. We played with different theatre techniques and tried out new methods for self-expression. During the 10 intensive days we met colorful people from different cultures and most of all – we faced ourselves, with all fears and established stereotypes, which define our comfort zone. But what exactly happened – we can’ tell! We made a vow of silence : ) And we also don’t want to spoil the surprise, if you decide to try some Basic Synergy Training!
