Urban Dreams

Through artistic intervention, the project cluster Urban Dreams aims to revitalise and open up dysfunctional spaces, buildings and objects as parts of a “parallel abandoned city”.

River of Imagination

Revitalisation of Maritsa river and Adata Island, using culture, art and green innovation.


The project cluster focuses primarily on children and youth audiences since their participation in the programme will determine the future of the cultural legacy and the artistic platforms in Plovdiv and Europe.
