      O poza, 1000 de cuvinte

      Cazinoul are o încărcătură culturală și emoțională imensă. Fiecare dintre noi are măcar o amintire legată de acest loc, dacă nu chiar o fotografie în fața lui. 
      Trimiteți-ne pe facebook amintirile voastre de pe faleza Constanței, care au în fundal cazinoul și noi premiem 5 câștigători (prin tragere la sorți) cu tricouri și câte o invitație la unul din evenimentele pregătite de noi între 1 și 10 august.

    About the project

    CaziNOU. 10 fascinating days at the seaside

    (1– 10 August 2014)

    Help us get the Casino of Constanta back on the cultural map and open it to the public this summer!

    Have you ever visited the Casino from Constanta? While passing by it, you must have wondered why such a beautiful building is always closed, and noticed its constant degrading. This summer, under the CALUP initiative, the hallmark of the Romanian seaside will reopen its doors, with your support. Between the 1 - 10 August we will be waiting for you on the promenade with an intense cultural program.

    What does CaziNOU mean?

    This is a social and urban reactivation project initiated by CALUP, which seeks to fulfil the following:

    -reaffirm the iconic status of the buildingfor a wide range of audience, and show that its reopening has a powerful backing by the public.

    -prepare a safe visiting ground for public events and stop future degradationof the casino. Essentially we will invest your donations in the building, for reparations, utilities and hygiene.

    -reopen the casino to the public for 10 days in August by offering an intense cultural program

    -create an educative and cultural platform, working as an urban and social catalyzer, to reaffirm the casino as a national landmark

    Project description

    The Casino of Constanta is a symbolic building of high architectural and urban value which despite its notoriety, has turned into a rather fading appearance. For 10 days we will reactivate the building on the current cultural scene. During the day, the casino will open its gates to the public providing the setting for workshops and other activities for visitors of any age. In the evening there will be jazz concerts, film screenings, theater and ballet shows, classical and electronic music, all these accompanied by projections on the Casino façade. The visitors will be able to enter the Casino, where they will be given information about its history, and more importantly, learn about the hidden stories of this symbolic building, which will be told in an alternative manner through artistic installations and interactive educational material.

    Who we are?  

    CALUP is an urban regeneration project initiated by a young group active in the creative industries. CALUP reactivates inactive spaces by creating a patrimony through cultural events perfectly tailored to the history and personality of each space, trying to reaffirm them on the cultural map of the city. Every CALUP intervention provides a platform for artists and designers, supporting in this way the local cultural scene. After several such projects of more architecturally-valuable buildings from Bucharest, this summer CALUP is starting its biggest project so far, an intervention at the Casino of Constanta.

    Why do we need you?

    Because we want to show that the Casino has a wide range of supporters and that it would be a main attraction for locals and tourists from all around the world, if it opens its doors.

    Because waiting for someone else to make a change has to stop, and to show that the Casino is in the minds and hearts of a wide range of audience, and not just in the holiday picture taken on the promenade.

    Because we want you to have a say in what this icon should become in the future.

    And last but not least, to gather the funds necessary for the first step in our intervention:to enable a safe visiting environment for the Casino, and slowing down the physical degradation of the building. Some of the works needed to be done are securing the areas which are in a critical state, fixing the holes in the floors and roof and reconnecting the building to electricity and water.

    The actual costs for the sanitization and against degradation of the building sum up to about 10.000 EUR. Higher support will help further our initiative and enable us to put in a little extra sparkle in the events planned for this summer.

    All contributions, no matter how small, prove that there are many people who think dearly of the Casino and will ensure it can be visited by as many people as possible this summer. So join our initiative, by donating as much as you can afford. But if you’re financially short you can also help us by increasing the visibility of this project and by sending this link to your friends.

    1-10 August 2014

    Because the event hall in the Casino is limited to 250 seats or 400 standing places, you can only reserve your place to the events you don’t want to miss by donating on the platform and choosing one of our wonderful reward packages. 

    Thank you, and see you at theCaziNOU!
