On April 7th, we gathered on our next Evening Evenings to look for the answer to the above question and to hear stories from several inspiring people who linked their professional and personal lives to culture. Not that which is, but the living culture of the present, that which is happening here and now. The one that is our contemporary face to Europe and the world. Personal transformation and development, with their challenges for the young artist – the stories of the special edition of Evening Evenings were united around this theme .
Difficult or easy to create here? Are artistic failures more artistic?
We have heard stories about good ideas and bad stories of circumstances, overcoming difficulties and people who do not give up because they know it makes sense.

Boris Delchev is an interior designer who keeps the interior to think more like a work of art. Before becoming the author of many prestigious projects around the world, Boris graduated from the Secondary School of Fine Arts in Sofia, then went to Paris where he graduated from the National Art Academy of Boz Ar and later at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts, Van der Kelen in Brussels. The projects he is currently working on sound almost unreal – the Geneva Palace of the Saussure family, the Paris palace, once belonged to the duke of Gesvres, now home to the top decorators, Sharier and Ashkar. Together with the latter, Delchev started work on the project – Versailles. For the first time, French state institutions entrusted a project of paramount historical importance to a private investor and contractor.
