SOFIA – A selection of 27 illustrations by 27 authors from all the EU member states call for activity in the upcoming European elections. The works are at the core of a wide campaign by Fine Acts in support of European unity and civic participation, which starts in Bulgaria and will unfold in different cities across Europe in the coming weeks.

The unique aspect of the collection is that all works are published under a specific open license, allowing activists and non-governmental organizations to use them non-commercially to encourage voting in their communities.

Anyone can create their own exhibition with these visuals or with a selection of them in their city or university. And in this way to inspire people to vote, to be active, said BTA Ana Alexieva – program director of Fine Acts.  

The exhibition “Get Out and Vote” was opened in Sofia on May 2 and will remain in the Bulgarian capital until May 16.    

In the European Union today, democracy is taken for granted, but not long ago millions Europeans could not vote or even speak freely. It is up to us to preserve democracy and make it stronger by voting, said Theodor Stoychev, head of the EP Bureau in Bulgaria.  

Every vote is a power that we can exercise to influence the direction in which the EU moves, pointed out Theo Georgiev, illustrator and Bulgarian representative in the campaign.  

“Together for the EU” is the Bulgarian language message for the EP elections. Bulgarians will again vote for 17 of their representatives in the European Parliament. A study by the EP shows that half of the Bulgarians are ready to cast their votes in the elections for MEPs. (07.05.2024)
