Sofia City Art Gallery and Aurubis Bulgaria Launch a Partnership
27 January 2016, Sofia - In 2016, a long-term Partner programme for culture and art was launched between the biggest copper producer in South-Eastern Europe, Aurubis Bulgaria, and Sofia City Art Gallery (SCAG). It is a good example for support of arts and a manifestation of cooperation between a cultural institution and one of the largest corporate sponsors in Bulgaria. The agreement provides for support aimed at modernization of the conditions for adequate presentation of expositions in the gallery and securing additional funding of significant exhibitions for a period of three years.
“Traditionally, Aurubis supports the development of arts and young talents. We promote cultural projects in the Sredna Gora region and believe that our cooperation with the gallery is a project with a long-term perspective, by which we will give an extra boost to the development of cultural life in Sofia”, said the Executive Director of Aurubis Bulgaria, Tim Kurth.
„The Gallery will contribute to the organization of activities and events, part of the corporate social responsibility of Aurubis Bulgaria, which are aimed at supporting talented Bulgarian creators, culture and education. With the realization of this joint programme, we will prove that art and business could develop a successful cooperation for the benefit of people and society“, said Mrs. Adelina Fileva, Director of SCAG.
Every year, Aurubis Bulgaria realises a partner programme with the municipalities of Pirdop and Zlatitsa, which covers the implementation of sustainable projects in the field of education, sports, integration of disadvantaged people, public health, as well as a series of national projects amounting to approx. BGN 1 million.
