It aims to strengthen the advocacy capacity of the cultural sector in policy debates on culture at European level, while encouraging it to work in a more collaborative way.
At the meetings in Brussels, the Center will be represented by Nikolay Vukov and Miglena Ivanova.
The participation of the Regional Centre in the structured dialogues will encourage the discussion about the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage at European level and will enhance the implementation of the Convention 2003.
