What’s On: Night of Museums and Galleries in Plovdiv, September 11 and 12 2015

The annual Night of Museums of Galleries is being held for the 11th time in Plovdiv on September 11 and 12 2015, certain again to draw thousands of visitors to Bulgaria’s second city.

Following the tradition of previous years, Open Arts Foundation, main organiser of “Night / Plovdiv”, as it is now termed, has divided the events on two consecutive days – September 12 and 12, and into three sections – Museums and Galleries, Culture & Club, and The City and Public Spaces.

Two other focal points in the programme this year are the Curatorial Programme and the Kids Programme.

This 11th “Night / Plovdiv“ will also include international projects, created exclusively for the festival and made by participants from the United States, Austria, Israel, The Czech Republic, France, Japan and Italy.

The locations, where all the exhibitions, installations, concerts, presentations and visual performances will be held number more than 70. The “Night/Plovdiv” includes more than 100 events.

The diversity of genres, encompassing the forthcoming edition of the festival, will make for a tough choice for the public, according to organisers.

That is why this year one important innovation will be implemented – themed guided tours, dedicated to the different sections of the program which will start in front of the Green Info-Punkt.

The Green Info-Punkt itself is another brand new and key initiative in the “Night” programme. What makes it so special is that it will be constructed and built in accordance with modern trends in sustainable architecture. The implementation of this project will begin after the end of thecompetition, organised by the Open Arts Foundation in partnership with EVN Bulgaria and Triple Green Building Group.

Printed programmes in Bulgarian and English are available during the days of the festival.
