Open Arts Foundation presents the new expanded version of Alternative Map of Plovdiv.
The presentation of the project is on 18.04 /Tuesday/ at 18 h in artnewscafe, 38 Otets Paisiy St.,Plovdiv.
The Alternative Map of Plovdiv is a travel guide to the places of Plovdiv which are different, little-known and aren’t included in official travel guides. The content of the Map is based on the presentations and discussion known as City Arbour (2012 and 2015), another project of Open Arts Foundation dedicated to the city of Plovdiv – it’s the urban environment and potential. The Alternative Map of Plovdiv and City Arbour are some of the main projects in the Open Arts Foundation’s City and Culture Program and they aim to create a new and broader perspective to the city and activate urban knowledge as a synthesis of social, historical and cultural curiosity. The Alternative Map of Plovdiv aims to foster civic reflection and the recognition of the city as a stimulating living organism and a place of engagement.
Project authors and initiators are Katrin Sarieva (Open Arts Foundation), Arch. Vladislav Kostadinov and Eng. Antonia Valkanova (8 ½ Studio). Consultants on the themes from 2015 are Vladimir Balchev, Nikola Venkov, Arch. Megan Lueneburg.
The Alternative Map of Plovdiv has a printed version from 2013. You can find out updated informaton about the Map and its alternative routes on the project’s website: www.alternativeplovdiv.com, where you can download .pdf versions of the routs.
