Cristo and Jean-Claude Center – A Clean Slate for Brand New Events


The Cristo and Jean-Claude Center is a 32-year-old dream of a group of Gabrovo residents – a dream that twisted, accelerated, and sometimes faltered but is now determinedly moving towards realization. This dream recently found its home in the former Textile Technical School, which in its prime years welcomed over a thousand students daily, preparing them to fuel one of the city’s main industries. In the past few weeks, with the joint efforts of the Gabrovo Municipality and the team at the Museum of Humor and Satire, preparations have begun to make the building ready for active use and for several exciting events at the beginning of this autumn. But we need the help of volunteers to have a completely clean place for entirely new events.


From September 14 to September 29, 2023.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Every Saturday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (you can dedicate as much time as you have).

Important: You should be able to join the activities from the start, as there will be a safety briefing for the teams.

Why participate?

You will help a building with history regain its good appearance and operate again for a better future. If you studied there, you can even visit your old classroom!

You will meet new and interesting people who share common passions and interests.

Required skills?

No specific skills are required, except knowing how to handle a broom or at least a rag and having a willingness to sort and arrange.

Equipment needed?

Opt for comfortable old clothes and shoes that you won’t mind getting dirty or torn. We will provide masks and gloves according to your activity. Oh, and don’t forget to bring friends along!

What is provided?

You can count on water and non-alcoholic beverages.

Health risks?

Due to dust in the building, the activity is not suitable for asthmatics and people with respiratory problems. Others can rely on the masks we provide. We believe there are no other health risks as long as you follow the preliminary instructions.
