Your guide to the local art scene

What is an

ArtCrawl?

A customised walking tour of independent contemporary art spaces in Cluj. A guide to the spaces and also the art.
ArtCrawls are like having that artsy friend that takes you to surprising places you wouldn’t have found on your own: alternative exhibition spaces, performances, artist and designer studios, local cafes, shops and events.

By exploring what the local scene has to offer, you experience a more genuine side of Cluj and Romania.

Where?
In different art spaces, galleries, at events or artist studios, depending on what interests you and what is on in town. Theatre and performances can also be a part of the tour.

When?
You decide the date and time. Keep in mind a tour usually lasts around 3 hours and that most spaces are closed on Sundays.

How much does it cost?
It’s 25€ per person.

Who is it for?
Anyone. Really! No prior knowledge is needed, genuine curiosity will suffice.

How many people can attend?
A minimum of 1, maximum 15. ArtCrawls are meant for small groups of people, so we can discuss the art.

What’s included?
Besides the experience, you also get an online map with cool spots in Cluj and a newspaper full of art! Entrance fees, if any, are not included.

We welcome everyone, regardless of age, sex, beliefs, sexual orientation, able-ness or background and will do our best to only include same-minded places in the tours. 🏳️‍🌈🧕🧓🏾🧓🏻🧓🧒🏽🧑‍🍼🧑‍🦽🧏🧑🏿‍🦯🦄

This is a unique tour that takes you into the heart of the art scene in Cluj. From conceptual art, to highly exclusive and gorgeous personal galleries, to rugged art communes. Everything is in spaces you’d never think to look, by a guide with great connections to the artists and gallerists. This is a tour for people who like to be asked to think about art, and Helga encourages you to share your interpretations. It is a great way to really engage with pieces. A real gem for artists and art enthusiasts - far more than a typical art tour.

This might have been my favorite part of my time in Cluj. She clearly cares so much about what she does. I wouldn't have known about any of the things we saw without her. My expectations were high, and it still was better than I could have imagined. I would recommend it to anyone coming to Cluj.

Helga asks you what you like in art. She arranges her visit according to your interests. We visited several very interesting places. Helga has shown us many works of art by Cluj (and Bucharest) artists. What was especially interesting : Helga shows the work, but invites you to think about how you feel and the artist's "message". There are some exciting discussions. I highly recommend this experience, you will have a great time.

Helga showed us fantastic places that we would never have discovered on our own. Her tour was planned with love and care and we would like to thank her very much for it - our tip: book the tour right at the beginning of your trip and enjoy all the great places!

I had a great tour with focus on local crafts and workshops! You can choose between different topics (local artists, handcraft, streetart, ...) and Helga will organize a special tour just for your interessts and wishes. She will also answer any questions on recommendations for food, museums, (unknown) sights. It was the best tour I ever had. Great! I can highly recommend to book a tour!
