Who Are We?

The Bulgarian Cultural and Social Association “Rodina” aims to promote and preserve Bulgarian culture, traditions, and language among the Bulgarian community in NSW. At Rodina Sydney, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 1978, we have been determined to make an impact, fostering knowledge and understanding of the Bulgarian culture and history through social events, expositions, forums, performances, and other public initiatives. We seek to strengthen the social, economic, educational, and cultural ties between Australia and Bulgaria, therefore, maintaining a close relationship with Australian organisations and institutions in Australia is of significant importance to us.

Our Core Projects: The Focus of Our Efforts

Language School

The main aim of the Bulgarian Language School is to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to foster a love of language and culture.

 

The school provides programs, that are approved by the Department of Education, that include traditions and customs.

Traditional Dance

Bulgarian Rhythms is a Sydney based dance group offering classes in traditional Bulgarian dancing. People of all ages, experiences and cultural backgrounds are welcome!


Our dancers perform at various cultural events, weddings, and multicultural festivals and often organise picnics, live music parties, and weekend getaways.

Community Events

2021 was another challenging year for all of humanity, however, it was a good year to evaluate and see what really matters in our lives. We came closer to the people we care about, and we spent more time being together.

It was a challenging year for our community too, but we were able to rise above all challenges and come into 2022 stronger, full of energy, and ready for action.
