    Posted: 11.10.2011 at 23:33
“Gallery in the Garden” is a unique place in the city of Plovdiv (Bulgaria) - the oldest city in Europe and one of the oldest in the whole world with more than 200 archeological sites dating from 6 000 years starting with Neolithic settlement, ancient Greek and Roman monuments...

Recently low cost airline Rayanair started cheap flights to Plovdiv from London, Barcelona and Frankfurt.

The Gallery in The Garden hosts symposiums, art courses and has an interesting collection of pictures and sculptures. Gallery space for exhibits and events, networking possibilities could help participants enter the cultural and social scenes of the city. Trips to places of interest – history, culture, wine cellars etc... can be organized for additional fees.

The studios are located close to the city centre of Plovdiv, where there is a strong cultural infrastructure - among them two art high schools, art University and a large number of galleries. Plovdiv is probably the city with the most artists and galleries per citizen in Europe...

What's more, the 3 000 m2 garden offers plenty of opportunities to escape from the pressures of daily life.

Gallery in The Garden offers residencies to artists from all disciplines - visual arts, sculpture, new media and performing arts, architecture, textile, music, literature, to art historians and working in educational programs, social workers or researchers, or anyone who wishes to enjoy Plovdiv.
