Water Tower Art • Sofia, Bulgaria • http://watertowerartfest.com/en/
Water Tower Art is an artist run initiative in Sofia, encompassing ideas of art, creativity, urban renewal and alternative art spaces.
“Since 2006 we initiative the Water Tower Art Fest in Sofia. This festival is an international art event with performances, installations, presentations and workshops that takes place every year in different spaces throughout the city of Sofia and beyond in Bulgaria. From very local grass-roots based initiative, we have proved throughout the years to be the most important international contemporary art festival in Bulgaria, using abandoned buildings and art in public spaces. The purpose of the project is to attract public attention to our immediate urban environment filled with abandoned spaces and tackle issues of tolerance, democracy and environment via contemporary art using socially engaged artworks. By using the abandoned buildings, we tackle issues of importance to the local community, integrate marginal groups and different generations in communication through the arts.”
