Idea pitch

The construction of the Innovative online platform for teaching Bulgarian folk instruments will increase the musical education and culture of adolescents and stimulate their social commitment to the valuable things in our lives. In order to build a future, we must preserve and spread the traditions, it is they that unite us in one community.Through the power of music we will show that language, race1, ethnicity and religion do not matter.

Where will your project idea take place?

Zlatograd, Smolyan, Bulgaria

What is the local challenge?

he hectic daily life, the insufficient personal time and thanks to the aggressive advertising with the means of modern communications of global music products there is a decrease in the public's interest in the national folklore traditions. With the successful implementation of the project proposal and with the help of the online accessible music platform, the impact of the national music tradition will increase and progress will be noticed in the desire to preserve and distribute it.

How does your idea strengthen democracy and active citizenship at a local and community level?

Our project is aimed at encouraging the development of communities and public spaces by means of:
• Providing access to a more diverse cultural landscape that will enable the younger generation to understand that
• Help to broaden the horizons of young people and their social engagement as future bearers of traditions and culture
• Encouraging people from Bulgaria and the world to get to know and understand such national cultures and to appreciate the richness of their traditions and to discover what they have in common.
Both globalization and the centralization of our time jeopardize traditions and the arts, which is especially evident in smaller cities, where one way to change this is to satisfy the thirst for culture of the local population and stimulate their creative potential.

Who are you doing it for?

The project activities are focused primarily on children and youth audiences. The globalization and centralization of today puts traditions and art at risk, which is especially pronounced in the younger generation, as its need for culture is very low. One of the ways to change this is to satisfy the thirst for knowledge of young people, to increase their interest in our folklore wealth and to stimulate their creative potential.
The successful implementation of the project proposal will contribute to the creation of lasting cultural ties between different countries around the world, will increase cultural exchange, will stimulate the desire to unite and create a musical world - understandable and accessible to all.

How do you plan to get there?

We will start with a study of the musical interests of young people.

We will organize the preparation and recording of online lessons.
We will organize a marketing and advertising campaign with the help of external specialized organizations to reach the information about the platform to every user of the Internet
