Una delegación de la ciudad búlgara de Gabrovo conoce la estrategia municipal de Bilbao en promoción cultural

The Director of Culture and Tourism of the Bulgarian town of Gabrovo, accompanied by representatives of the creative cluster of Gabrovo, will visit Bilbao on July 20, 21 and 22, in order to meet the municipal strategy on culture and major cultural facilities in the city. Gabrovo’s interest in Bilbao is due to the fact that the city plans to become a design and contemporary art centre.

The cities of Bilbao and Gabrovo will look for collaborative strategies for the development of cultural projects and exchange of artists, in the framework of a meeting to be held by the Director of Culture of Gabrovo, Yonka Agalova, and his counterpart from Bilbao City Council, Joseba Iñaki Lopez de Aguileta. The approach between the two cities was conceived during the Culture Summit, held in Bilbao last March, sponsored by the Association of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG).

The Bulgarian delegation will learn Bilbao’s good practices for managing projects and cultural products, during a meeting to be held in Bilbao Ekintza. The representation of Gabrovo will receive information on municipal strategies for the promotion of art, fashion, design and technology, as well as the actions taken to attract major international events to Bilbao. The agenda will also include a meeting in BEAZ, business and innovation centre of Biscay.
