Cooltsalon is a platform for ideas and creativity exchange in urban context, which 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 currently operates on three levels: exposure platform, creative network, arts & cross-disciplinary events curator.
