The presentation is part of the Plovdiv Neighborhoods TOGETHER project. This project presents the neighborhoods and the communities of the city of Plovdiv in their Together-ness. The neighborhoods of the city have their own lives, their memories and images, which often remain unknown to others. The project presents the heritage of the neighborhoods and the life of the Chitalishta, with the participation of the citizens in the cultural life of the city.

Virtual portfolio

This project includes the creation of a virtual portfolio of Plovdiv that will show the living heritage of the neighborhood communities and their spaces - with information about the the neighborhoods of the city and their chitalishta, utilising visual and ethnographic web mapping. Along with this a platform that will unite all the Chitalishta in Plovdiv within an information network using a single event calendar, will be created.

The project is carried out by the Department of Ethnology at the Faculty of Philosophy and History at Plovdiv University “Paisii Hilendarski”, in partnership with the Association for Culture, Ethnology and Anthropology “Mediator”, Stoyna Krastanova Foundation, Shalom Aleychem - 1945 Chitalishte, with the help of the RECIC - Plovdiv and the Union of Municipal Chitalishte - Plovdiv and the technical support of CartLab.
