A brief description of the activities:
The partners got to know the Municipality of Sandanski and its natural and cultural heritage. Through discussions, guided workshops, and presentations, we experienced various forms of of art and artistic genres, which are the tools for the realization of intercultural dialogue. We established a Heart Point of Sandanski that stands at the statue od Spartacus. Heart point will receive support in official matters from the Municipality of Sandanski. Spartak’s freedom-loving Heart Point will perform the basic mission of cultural tourism. The hosting organization organized group discussions and an interesting public debate about the future of Europe, which was based around facts about Euroscepticism, and from which we concluded the importance of involvement of individual citizens for positive coexistence and development. We also contemplated the importance of cultural tourism and of acceptance and cooperation with the understanding our identity while using art.
