Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is my pleasure and honour as a Chairman of the Organising Committee
to invite you to the 33rd Congress of the International Art Medal Federation (FIDEM),
which will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria between 2nd and 6th September 2014.
Distinguished artists and scholars from all over the world will participate in the Congress,
exchanging valuable information and vast experience. Artists from all countries will have the
opportunity to present their achievements of the past two years. Thereby they will continue
the tradition of encouraging the medal art, which is the main mission of our Federation.
The Congress will be accompanied by a unique medal exhibition
of more than 700 medals from 30 countries. This exhibition will take place in Sofia
and will be available during September. It promises to be one of the most
important events in the cultural calendar of the country.
As part of the Congress there will also be a very interesting and diverse social
programme, which will enable you to discover more about Bulgaria
and our tradition of medallic sculpture.
We shall be expecting you!
Prof. Bogomil Nikolov
Bulgarian Delegate to FIDEM
