Your own space: Seize it. Run it. Sustain it - Part 1
Although the broad independent arts scene in Sofia has been developing intensively in the last decade, there are still not enough spaces for rehearsing and presenting productions. Recognizing the increasing importance of the independent arts sector, and preparing the candidature of Sofia for European Capital of Culture 2019, the Sofia Municipality has been working with the independent scene for the past years, selecting and developing such spaces. Now Sofia has lost the bid for Cultural Capital, your support in sharing know-how, experiences and bringing collective brainpower will be even more valued.
The first part of the working group offers you a guided tour to the potential future interdisciplinary arts spaces in Sofia: the heating plant of NDK, the industrial zone “Culture”, Undergara and TramDepo. During this 2-hour tour you will also discover other interesting sites in Sofia, and end up at the Central Bath; a newly created Museum in Sofia, and the location of the official opening of the meeting.
