IDEAS Factory

ideasfactorybg.org/en/

Ideas Factory is a platform that unites active people in the country and abroad, who create threads of connection at places where they are scarce – among generations, among disciplines, between the city and the village, between citizens and municipal authorities, between “center” and “periphery“. By building bridges of interaction there, where they are destroyed, we believe, that we are creating alternatives for a world that’s getting more radicalized, more isolated in “the bubbles of the single truth”, by substituting the fear with familiarization, with exploration, with the creation of new solutions. The Factory does that through various formats for creative interaction, from which quite specific solutions, which we support from the beginning to their realization, are born. Our initiatives Baba Residence, the Social Innovation Challenge and EMPATHEAST are our manifest for change that we need now: connection among disciplines, generations, ideas that make up the world such as we would live in: curious, nonjudgmental, creative.
