These and more of their photobooks are at SeeMeOn 29 for an exhibition on October 26 and 27, and at 16:00 on the 26th we also meet the authors in conversation (in English) about their work.

    NEW ROOTS FESTIVAL
    "Is it easy for someone to grow new roots in a city like Sofia?", asks the festival, that already happened in Italy, before reaching the community garden of Multi Kulti. The address is 5 Chernomen, and the invitation is to get together with migrants and refugees for an afternoon of music, cocktails, food from around the world, climate discussions and sustainable workshops such as composting, bird feeders and urban agriculture. On October 26 from 12:00 until dark.

    RESCUE DOG
    What can make Saturday's eating of hotdogs (at Rolling Dogs) under the sounds of hip-hop, chill beats and funk (by Marble Souls) even better? If with all this buzz you are actually making the world a better place. On October 26, after 13:00, the situation on 34 Shishman is exactly that, as 2BGN of each hotdog you buy goes for Animal Rescue. To make it even sweeter, some of the animals from the shelter in question are also going.

    BURGERS AND ABSINTHE
    You must know Marian (Rankov) and Sasho (Paisiyev) as bartenders at bar Friday (ex). Well, it is clear that besides pouring drinks, they do other things, for example, amazing steaks. Discover their recipes for yourself on October 26 from noon to 20:00 at the Vitosha September hut, where they both pop a pop-up barbecue and begin mass production of cheeseburgers and smoked ribs, which we will swallow with absinthe and music.
