Thematic Event Partnership Fund/ Civil Society 

On the 15th of October, a thematic event took place at Cărturesti Verona. The SIB for Civil Society and Partnership – the Foundation for the Civil Society Development FDSC in partnership with SCO organised a Photo Exhibition followed by a Silent Auction, marking the closing of a special project: Stories of Renewal. The event was hosted by Cafe Verona and gathered around 80 people interested in supporting and furthering the growth of Swiss Funded Projects for local communities.

The exhibition with photos from ten major projects, developed through SRCP, was the result of a journey made by photographer Cătălina Filip and blogger-journalist Victor Kapra in April - June 2015. The stories were recently gathered in an e-book "Stories of Renewal" (https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/romania/en/home/enlargement-contribution/publications-multimedia.html ).

The event had a strong impact, and included an interview with the blogger and the photographer. 15 out of the 20 exhibited photos were sold.
