The cultural map of Night of Museums and Galleries - Plovdiv 2016 offered more than 140 events at 70 locations in the city. Along with the already traditional programs “Museums and Galleries”, “Culture and Club”, “City and Public Spaces” and “Little Night” the festival presented a special program called “Open Arts”. Through it, the foundation, as a basic organizer of the Night of Museums and Galleries and with the help of its loyal partners, has established itself as a producer and co-producer of content. At its core, “Open Arts” is a multi-genre program prepared by professionals – curators, selectors and experts in various genres, which continues the vision of the foundation to seek, to experiment and transcend the boundaries of traditional forms and understandings of art. In the new “Open Arts program” the festival organizers promise a special selection of works and artists thematically divided by genres – cinema, theater, literature, dance, contemporary art, art and new technologies, projects in urban environments etc.
