Sofia Literature and Translation House:

Next Page and Sofia Municipality Sign an Agreement on Launching the Literature and Translation House

After more than two years of negotiations and preparations, the first public-private partnership in culture at municipal property in Sofia is a fact! The Literature and Translation House is an initiative of Next Page Foundation now to be jointly developed with the municipality at a site of a cultural value: the former residency of the renowned Bulgarian painter Nenko Balkanski.

The partnership was unanimously approved by 55 members of Sofia City Council. The activities of the Literature and Translation House are to be governed by a Development Committee comprising representatives of Next Page, Sofia Municipality and the proprietor of the premise, the Sofia History Museum.

Albeit both the
website and partly the house itself are under constant refurbishment, lively professional events are already taking place and the residency program is advancing.

We Have Moved!

Next Page Foundation has moved its office to a new location. We will be working out of the newly opened Literature and Translation House (see above news):

12 Latinka Str.
Sofia 1113, Bulgaria

Telephone numbers and email addresses remain the same.
