The Embassies Festival, first initiative of its kind in the Romanian cultural landscape

For 5 days, on September 1-5, through a series of events and exhibitions, held in 3 different locations, Bucharest will become the colorful host of multiculturalism, diversity, contemporary artistic manifestos, dance, music, food, artisanal art and theatre.
More than 50 embassies representing 6 continents will have the opportunity to open their doors to Romanian visitors and residents. Visitors will travel around the world through their own city and Bucharest will become an azimuth of cultural tourism, helping to revive the local cultural economy.
Throughout the 5 days, cultural and arts organizations will have the opportunity to present internationally themed programming—ranging from traditional to contemporary, from swing music to scholarly pursuits, from classical to experimental, from artisanal to urban cool and street performances. It will be an opportunity to develop the field of cultural tourism in Bucharest, including international programs and events that will add a signature to the city. The festival will operate as an abundant and diverse exhibition of arts and entertainment, including debates on international culture and policies that will capitalize the foreign diplomatic relations with the Romanian public.
‘It is an interdisciplinary project focusing on the following artistic areas: visual arts (painting, graphics, sculpture, photography and film), music, dance, fashion and product design, urban culture, theatre, artisanal, specific and traditional food & drink,’ according to the organizer, Escu Association.
‘The Embassies Festival is an initiative that arose from a natural motivation to transform Bucharest into a multicultural capital and from the desire to develop the knowledge, tolerance, education and interaction level of Romanian public with regards to the specific manifestations of different cultures which are represented in Romania by the embassies and the expat communities,’ added the organizer.
