Local Connections

Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019 will host Ormston House as part of the European network AIM for a series of meetings of independent artist-led, creative and cultural initiatives.

Local Connections is a programme of events, exhibitions and installations in abandoned or alternative spaces, performances, workshops, and an open discussion on the theme of local/global artistic initiatives.

The meetings aim to bring the framework of AIM to Plovdiv, thus contributing to the development of local initiatives and creating opportunities for exchange of experiences and collaborations at both local and international levels.
