Sfera International organized an art residence in the region of Prespa lake as a part of a long-term project ECHO II – Traditions in Transitions which runs from September 2020 until June 2022.

It is about bringing innovation and creativity to local cultural artistic traditions of each region which participated in the ECHO II.
The project invites artists from the fields of: painting, sculpture, graphic designs, fashion design, craftwork and mural to create interesting artworks inspired by traditions of each region included in the project.
