The Summer Academy and Symposium, Ahtopol, 2013 is a unified academic project of the National Academy of Arts, which creates conditions through collaboration of the participating lecturers and students to share new methods and forms of artistic creation of sculptural works.
What is specific in the work of the artists in this year is that the participating lecturers work in different areas of art, but have an affinity for material, shape and volume. Thus created sculptures provide the audience with a different creative look, contributing to aestheticisation of the city and the development of cultural tourism.
