KDK – The Club of Cultural Figures
Future for KDK is a community initiative aiming to raise funds for the restoration and revitalization of the building of the former Club of Cultural Figures in Veliko Tarnovo and to bring it back to life and also to preserve the public function and architectural value of the building.
VISION FOR KDK
The vision of the TAM Club and the Varna Social Teahouse is for KDK to become a modern cultural and social center, which will offer the local communities and guests of Veliko Tarnovo a place for dialogue and a diverse program of cultural events. And young people from at-risk social groups to get the opportunity for their first secure job and support through a mentoring program.
COMMUNITY DEBATE AND SUPPORT
The discussion on the future of KDK started in 2020, with the participation of representatives of institutions, non-government organizations, business and the local community (video). Dozens of artists, cultural managers and citizens have publicly expressed their support for the idea (videos #FutureFromKDK)!
The Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo recognized the cause and in April 2021 decided to lend the first floor and the backyard for a period of 5 years for the purposes of the initiative. Dozens of volunteers took part in cleaning the premises.
The architects from Atelier IA got involved in the project completely free of charge, in creating an architectural project for the premises on the first floor and the back yard. The project was publicly presented and was given the green light from the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo. The feedback from the community at every step of the process is important!
THE FUNDS NEEDED
Preliminary calculations show that the repair will cost no less than BGN 50,000. This includes the cost of replacing the electrical installation, air conditioning and dealing with the damp issues, electrical installation, lights, change of flooring and window and door frames.
We rely on donations from citizens and companies to raise the money and on the work of specialists!
As of beginning of July 2021, the costs of cleaning the building amount to BGN 2,063, and donations are BGN 1,125.
