A Happiness Pavilion will be opened today at 4.30 pm in Veliko Tarnovo’s Marno Pole Park. The futuristic stall will have an important role in Veliko Tarnovo’s communicational strategy as part of the bid to win the European capital of Culture 2019 Contest. The installation and the area around it will turn into a creative open scene till the end of September. The stage will welcome participants and artists who want to share their works and art with citizens and guest of the town. The Pavilion will also be the place for a number of artisan workshops, ateliers, master classes and open lessons. It will also double as an information centre concerning the candidature in the contest and a place where everyone can share their thoughts or give suggestions for a project or a cultural event.
The Happiness Pavilion will be interactive; everyone can have a small wooden piece on which to write or draw their wish or massage and then stick it back on the Pavilion frame.
