The BSBSA project is a collaborative effort uniting three organisations from Bulgaria, Serbia, and Romania. Their goal? To amplify the creation and circulation of European art. This initiative redefines public spaces across these countries through transformative art installations.
Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, the project focuses on bolstering the capacity of European cultural and creative sectors. It aims to achieve this by promoting international engagement through cultural exchanges and showcasing artists’ works in multidisciplinary exhibitions spanning the three nations.
At its core, the BSBSA project uses art to rejuvenate public spaces in Bulgaria, Romania, and Serbia. Through a variety of means like artistic interventions, workshops, talks, tours, an urban art book, a street art map and exhibitions, it collaborates with local communities, artists, and stakeholders to regenerate and celebrate public spaces.
