The ''Creating Good'' contest organizers unite in the understanding that arts provide unique ways to broaden and enrich our imagination and understanding of the world. Moreover, we believe that art can help us to do more good by fostering respect for others and by directing our attention to problems and issues that remain out of scope of public debate. Arts help create and maintain our sense of community as they represent forms of communication and social interaction. The aesthetic delight they provide cultivates our feelings and enriches our mind. A soul that knows and appreciates beauty can also become beautiful and good. Art can create new realities and recreate existing ones to reinforce the ideas of good, dignity and shared values using images and concepts by which we understand and perceive the world.

The competition is divided into four categories: young musicians, artists, writers, and young people who would like to obtain higher education but face financial difficulties. The objective is to support young people in their creative pursuits by providing opportunities for recognition, financial assistance, a forum for sharing their ideas and reassessing their calling and mission as artists.

On April 21 in the gallery "Bulgaria" of Sofia Philharmonic awarding ceremony took place in a national competition "doing good."

The event combined the gala-concert of finalists in the category for young musicians and the opening of the exhibition of selected works in the section for young artists. The organizers discussed ideas for the competition, about how art can help us to do better and how participants transformed the theme "do-gooding". The writer Kalin Terziysky presented the awards to the winners. The exhibition continues until May 11th.

In each category you can see the winners, their works and video recordings of the event.

The combined prize pool is over 8 thousand euros. We want to thank the donors and volunteers who helped us to realize this initiative. You can see their names and allocations from here .
