Love Classical is a campaign for promoting classical music in Romania. It happens on the streets with composers names in Bucharest, where I placed stickers that read "You are walking daily on Verdi street, but when was the last time you listened to him?" and feature a QR code that once scanned, plays the music of that specific composer's street you are walking on.
Urban exploration + classical music = Love Classical.
This idea came to me during various protests I attended in recent years throughout Bucharest. I have noticed that people do not necessarily know their rights and liberties, do not know the attributions of the president, the government, parliament or other state institutions.
Therefore, the Constitutuion of Romania has to be more accessible to the general public.
I think its vital to be informed in this direction, especially the youth, that's why I have made this Instagram account for the Constituion. I have chosen a more relaxed tone of voice, the Constitution wants to be your friend, follows you and invites you to follow back. So by knowing each other better you will be more informed, thus more powerful.
To provide young teenagers with a good start in life, both as people and as citizens, the Fanbook Reading Club and the Romanian Constitution on Instagram formed CIVIC FANBOOK, a civic initiative project, presenting and debating fundamental rights and obligations as we find them in the Romanian Constitution.
The debates will be moderated by special guests - personalities from the cultural and artistic area without any political involvement, sharing their practical experience in order to mobilize high school students to know and to demand their rights and also to stimulate them to get civically involved.
The Constitution of Romania on Instagram posts an article every day in a visual-friendly and impactful form. It addresses young people, coming down from the law in an environment where they feel comfortable.
So far, Local has signed Romanian artists such Alien Pimp, Bogdan, Casetofoane, Cosmin TRG, Cristi Cons, Discoballs, Inner, Makunouchi Bento, Minus&Ion, The Model, Khidja, Silent Strike, Sillyconductor, Suie Paparude, Amur, Fierbinteanu, Plurabelle, Vlad Caia.
After 15 years in which the Romanian electronic music scene evolved in attitude and artistic awareness, a critical mass of producers tookshape, from which new values can grow. Until now, the majority of themhave been working by themselves and sharing their music only in smallcircles. The public is not aware of their existence and does notperceive them as an artistic movement of any kind. This lack ofcommunication and perspectives (the chance to be heard by a biggeraudience, to have local and international success, to be appreciated, supported and promoted) discourages any future producers that arethinking to choose this direction.
Local Records appears in this context, a promoting platform that wants to create an artistic community of mutual interests and to discover new Romanian sound by encouraging producers which currently don’t have the stimuli to persevere and show their true potential. The Romanian scene is young and fresh. It has lived its childhood and just started its creative adolescence. Native producers found their proximal genre and are already expressing their specific differences – this is the road to originality and authenticity. They integrate theirenvironment and personal history into their work. In local conditions, they manage to create an authentic sound based on global considerations. We’re not trying to theorize it, we are underlining its emergence.

We, the Romanian creative bunch, love your products. We use Photoshop everyday. But you see, this .PSD extension is driving us mad lately. PSD in our country stands for a corrupted political party. We are tired to see the same extension attached to great projects we believe in. This doesn't only "corrupt" our files, but also our moral standards. It needs to stop!
We ask for your help and hereby petition you to create a Photoshop update for Romania that will change the PSD extension.
