Bulgaria | Water Tower Art Fest | open call


Artists are invited to submit proposals for Water Tower Art Fest, to be held in alternative art spaces across the city of Sofia, Bulgaria 24-30 June 2011.

On behalf of NGO IME, we have the pleasure of inviting you to submit a proposal for an art work, installation, performance, or presentation to the Water Tower Art Fest in Sofia, Bulgaria! This year there is no theme for the festival mere communication is on the basis of all this!

The festival has been developed over the years in alternative art spaces across the city of Sofia. The initial venue was an unused water tower, which has now become a symbol for our city’s alternative possibilities. During the festival we populate abandoned or underused buildings with art and artists and open them to the public. Progressively gaining recognition in the Bulgaria art scene, we have over time added new venues to the festival. New sites include: baths, archaeological remains, and other buildings with architectural or historical value for our culture.

Please make your proposal specific to the venue/s in which you are interested in working. 2011 sites will be (click on venue name to see photos):
