Cooltsalon is a platform for ideas and creativity exchange in urban context, that originated in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2014 with a series of “1-week-only” site-specific exhibitions. Over the years, Cooltsalon’s mission has grown into giving exposure to individual voices hidden behind the collective city life. These opportunities were presented through a variety of events – from guided walks to meet local creative businesses to site-specific exhibitions with international artists. Cooltsalon is about building a sustainable network of contacts and resources, accessible to anyone who has taken part in our various collaborative projects and events; creating a context in which ideas exchange can take place, comparing and contrasting one urban environment to another and how we operate within it.
