Since 2013, the initiative POdLEZNO has been engaged in creative renovation and the addition of new features in unattractive public spaces. The initiative starts with the renewal of the underpasses but expands its activity, including the opportunity for creative interpretation in other urban spaces. The team renovated four underpasses using the following thematics: nature, music, graffiti and cinema. Some of our new ideas are to create a scientific, gaming, sporting, theatrical and art underpass by choosing themes according to the wishes of the citizens. In 2017, we intend to create an underpass called "Science is Light", representing an extraordinary and unconventional museum full of knowledge and interactive installations, presented in an accessible and intriguing way.The organization works in partnership with the Sofia Municipality and the regional administrations, with a wide range of artists and volunteers.
