Cluj-Napocar is one of Romania’s largest cities, located in the heart of Transylvania.
The remarkable natural landscape that surrounds the city, the architectural diversity and the rich heritage make it one of the most dynamic cultural landmarks in Romania.
Made up of a very young and independent cultural and creative fabric, the cultural scene in Cluj-Napoca is characterised by its dynamism and encompasses many of the most attractive film, music and arts festivals in the country.
The “Artists Together” movement - Artiști Împreună in Romanian - was initiated by the Cluj-Napoca Cultural Centre (Romania) and the Romanian Health Observatory, with the support of the Banca Transylvania banking institution, aiming to mobilise Romanian artists in the fight against Covid-19.
The movement's mission is to involve art and artists in an effort to raise awareness among the population of Romania about relevant topics related to the state of emergency declared as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as contributing to provide the country with hard data in the current context of crisis.
Currently, the www.artistiimpreuna.ro platform provides around 50 works of art by artists from all over Romania, created in a diversity of artistic formats (visual arts, sound, video, theatre, literature, photography). These works, produced in response to the challenge, focus on three themes: #responsibility #together and #heroes.
The aim is that this movement will achieve some sense of continuity, highlighting the importance of the role of art in various crisis situations, as an important means with which to raise awareness in society.
