Between July 15 to October 31 the third part of the project — Visioning The City — invites you to equally dream and become involved in transforming the city. Along with the cultural happenings that it has already accustomed its public to, the European Cultural Center of Bucharest at ARCUB Gabroveni hosts a series of events organized in the context of the city’s candidacy to the title of European Capital of Culture in 2021. The schedule is completed by partnered events that take place all across Bucharest, as well as by specific action that converge to the same spirit.
The European Capital of Culture title means more than a pretentious denomination, a prize or a cultural festival. First and foremost, this candidacy needs you!
At the same time, the MEMORY and EXPLORING THE CITY phases actions continue, inviting citizens to become involved in the emotional mapping of the city by contributing with photos and videos of the past and present.
Join #Bucuresti2021 and let’s draw the contour of a realistic Bucharest of the future each step at a time!
Over the past four months we took a first glance at the past. We went through mapped stories of the city and mapped its citizens emotional memory, which we exhibited in both real and virtual space. Then we looked at today. We went out on the streets, seeking to discover unknown, hidden aspects of the city we live in. There’s a need of introspection to create a projection. Bucharest offers inspiration that is often overlooked. We will seek to draw a coherent trajectory starting with existing lines of vision that open windows into the future. So, in the second half of the summer and early autumn we invite you to join us at the following events:
AT ARCUB GABROVENI
THE BUCHAREST 2021 CARAVAN
Further activities are to be announced on our website and on our social networks, while at the Info Kiosk at ARCUB Gabroveni, our team will tell you more on how you can participate in mapping the emotional past and present of the city that continues throughout the summer. We outline Bucharest together!
