Bulgaria's Culture in EU-ten Years Later

Bulgaria's Culture in EU-ten Years Later

In January 2017 Bulgaria marks the 10th anniversary of its accession to the European Union. What changes were made in the country's cultural sphere during that period? According to Director of Intangible Cultural Heritage Department with the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture Associate Professor Ventsislav Velev Bulgaria has had the opportunity to receive financing under various EU programmes. Earlier, we were experiencing money shortage when we intended to create a high-quality product, Associate Professor Velev told Radio Bulgaria. As a result, we were facing a series of problems. Secondly, cultural exchange between artists from different EU member states has intensified. They used to cooperate even before Bulgaria entered the EU, but after the country's accession to the union most Bulgarian artists were motivated to show that they were part of the entire cultural process in Europe and the European cultural network, Ventsislav Velev said.
