Foundation for Entrepreneurship, Culture and Education (FECE) is a non-profit organisation, based in Sofia, Bulgaria, founded on 14 January 2014. Our mission is to promote, assist and support the development of culture, education, innovation and the entrepreneurial qualities of young people and people with fewer opportunities. FECE promotes freedom of cultural expression, encourages and organises creative initiatives in different fields of art, culture, media and education in an independent and creative nature.
Our vision is to empower different communities and target audiences through arts, culture and education. FECE stands for preserving cultural heritage between generations and the development of intercultural dialogue among different layers of society. FECE provides support for the organisation and implementation of cultural events, seminars, research and conferences. The team accomplishes these goals by implementing diverse cultural and art projects at national and international level. Motivated professionals in the sphere of culture, new media and education form FECE’s board.
FECE is focused on working with young people, e.g., those with fewer opportunities. Through different initiatives, the team has already implemented notable national and international training courses and youth exchanges covering topics such as social and cultural entrepreneurship, environmental awareness and protection, sport, intercultural communications, cultural heritage, common human values and active citizenship. Through our art programmes, we provide opportunities for young and emerging artists to develop and present their artworks on a national level. In those activities, FECE explores new forms of cultural expression, the intersections between digital and traditional arts and the effects of new media on cultural consumption.
