Our methods as a social innovation

In September, a member from Sofia Bread House team took part in the Academy of Cultural Management 2017, where we presented the work of the Bread Houses Network from the point of view of innovation in the social and cultural field. The Academy was organized by the Goethe-Institut Bulgaria, the Sofia Development Association and the City of Sofia. The event aimed to build capacity and increase the competences of cultural managers in Sofia and the region. The event was attended by representatives of municipal and national institutions, as well as independent organizations from the cultural and educational spheres. We moderated a discussion on “Social innovations” – a possibility for idea exchange between cultural managers with rich experience and many implemented projects, as well as beginners in the field.

House of Bread and Peace changes lives in Evansville

 Sr. Joanna Trainer, a Benedictine sister, brought her vision to reality in 1984 when she purchased a house that would become the home needed to shelter women and their children as they began their journey to change their lives. The House can accommodate 22 to 26 individuals, with several rooms available for women with children.
