A gathering in the park

Life is a journey made up of many-colored destinies and intriguing encounters. Every meeting is a new adventure, which brings us together so that we can look beyond our differences and become aware of how much we resemble one another no matter where we come from.

The Initiative “A gathering in the park”, which celebrates the World Refugee Day, will be held on June 16th, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. till 18:00 p.m. in the Borisova Garden Park in Sofia.

During the entire day there will be studios and workshops in tents around the stage for drawing with henna, preparation of genuine Arabic lavash bread, jewellery and souvenirs, art activities for children, games, a photo exhibition, projections and a number of other activities for children and adults.

The initiatives and workshops in the framework of the event are organized by “Caritas Sofia”, CVS Bulgaria, the Initiative for Social Development, Burgers on the Road, the United Nations Association of Bulgaria, Sofia Bread House, the Council of Refugee Women in Bulgaria and others.
