Construction works of a Laboratory of Bulgaria’s Interactive Map of Arts commence

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on 8 January 2020 to begin the construction and assembly works of a Laboratory of Bulgaria’s Interactive Map of Arts.
The project provides for the start-up stage of a long-term plan to digitise the archives of the Institute of Art Studies and create a unified database accessible online and an interdisciplinary interactive map of Bulgaria’s cultural heritage.
The interactive map will offer links to various segments of the archives (folk music, fine arts, architecture, drama and film art), showing different layers of cultural life across this country. The records of sites and monuments that can be dated will be listed chronologically to illustrate different historical periods of Bulgaria’s cultural development. The map will be supplied with studies, references, bibliographies of any given site or monument.
