    Description

    We are organizing a streetfestival , taking place in the area between Nova Gorica (Slovenia) and Gorizia (Italy), from 2nd - 4th September. It uses mechanisms of participatory theater and gamification to achieve the involvement of visitors, while promoting the connection of local artists from both sides of the border and thus strengthening the local creative scene. The festival is a pilot version, so we basically offer a platform (promotion, locations) for artists' presentation, and the creators’ fees are in this year’s implementation according to the system of voluntary contributions (per hat). Together, we will create a festival that will be interesting, diverse, and above all based on the creativity of local artists – that is, all of us – with a goal to develop it and get even greater support in the coming years.

    THINGS TO DO AND SEE
    There's a beatiful Soča river nearby, where you can take a swim.
    If you are up for hiking you can take nice walks in nature in the near hills of Trnovo forest Plateau or walk in high mountines of Julian Alps 40 km away. There's also a few castles worth visiting (Rihemberk Castle, Kromberk Castle, Gorizia Castle).

    The festival takes place just at the Europe square which is situated on the border between Italy and Slovenia ().
    Nova Gorcia lies in a wine region so we suggest visiting some wine cellars of the local farmers.
