Un-hidden Bucharest is an urban regeneration project imagined as a series of 3 public signals aimed at humanising the city and promoting its exploration through art in an alternative cultural route that recommends the most remarkable artistic interventions in the public space. The three urban signals are produced in collaboration with the project partners – CNDB, Cinema Marconi, Lente, activating, through art, the public spaces they share with locals and tourists.

The tour will be available as a performance with participants, web & print.
