On September 28, 2022, Human Resources Development Agency and FPC ltd held their final CODE project closure event at “Yordan Yovkov” High school in Ruse. It was attended by over 60 students and teachers from the school and Ruse region, graduates from the courses, partners, experts from the field of creative industries, as well as other stakeholders.
The teams of the 2 partner organizations presented the training programs for the courses in 3D animation, graphic design, and game design, developed under the Project. The expert teachers talked about the challenges and difficulties they faced and shared that they are satisfied with the results achieved. Some of the graduates have already created their first works of art – digital paintings, portraits, characters, short cartoons, etc. Many of them have continued their education, others have started working in local companies, which is another proof that the specialized courses under the CODE project have successfully contributed to the creative and professional growth of students.
Although this was the last meeting of the project, Creative Center Ruse continues its work and further development. At the meeting, the team presented the upcoming free game design course organized under the “Creativity” project, which is implemented jointly with the “Ruse – City of the Free Spirit” Foundation and with the support of Econt Express.
The project CODE benefits from a 2 300 000 €grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
