Exhibition on Wheels “I wasn’t born to be here!”
Friends, are you satisfied with the urban accessibility in Sofia? Well, we are not, so we continue our efforts to demand Sofia Municipality to do this. And we keep trying to explain to every citizen or visitor to the capital that there are still some citizens who can’t visit many places in Sofia due to the inaccessible environment.
Our next initiative is a continuation of campaign “I wasn’t born to be here!” and it is an exhibition on wheels, showing posters with inaccessible environment in various public places in the capital city.
The opening will be held on March 2nd 2016 in the lobby of the State Theatre of Satire “Aleko Konstantinov”, where every fan of the art will be able to see absurd situations with people with disability, who dared to move around the city of Sofia.Read More
