ABOUT THE PROJECT
“Get Out Fest” was an event organized on a little island in Tineretului Park. The island is an undeveloped and unmaintained space, but it is used by many people for relaxation, for contemplation, for fishing and for sun bathing. The concept behind the event “Get Out Fest” was that public space is ours and we have the right to negotiate it and to shape it according to our needs and visions.
We wanted to show the potential, but also the beauty of the small island, to show new ways of spatial development. After long negotiations with City Hall, to whom the park belongs, we obtained the necessary authorization for the event. Subsequently, we negotiated with the Park’s Administration and we got their support: Mrs. Mihaela, the tireless manager of the park, sent us people who mowed the tall grass, which made half of the island unmanageable, but also a tractor driver who helped us transport all the logistics to the respective place.
