Huge thanks go to Cristian Vasile aka Igu, the founder of feeder.ro, who continues to be an inspiration through his personal projects, all the team involved over the years, the partners, supporters, friends, and most importantly, YOU, the reader!

It‘s nice talking with YOU every day, discovering this interesting world of art, music, design, film and the internet. We hope you enjoy this ride as much as we do. We’re one click away so keep in touch and talk soon. ❤️
Here is a recap of feeder’s categories and editorial projects:
feeder.ro is „the alternative nation’s news agency”, a website which, for the past 14 years, has been publishing news and articles on the urban scene, alternative events, contemporary art, music, architecture, design, contemporary dance & more. Now we are broadening our scope in order to expand the conversation that feeder has been maintaining with its readers and partners.
In its 14 years promoting quality events and news, feeder rounded up an online network of trendsetters and influencers, djs and promoters, along with visual artists and key figures in general who made their mark on and continue to advance Bucharest’s image, reaching more than 2.2 million visitors.
feeder insider is a series of interviews published weekly on feeder.ro, starting March 2014
More than 100 interviews explore the universe surrounding music and visual arts while connecting the local to the international creative scene. In order to expand the dialogue between the Romanian public and the artists we love, we’re sparking off inspiring conversations around today’s artistic landscape with newcomers and veterans alike.
The printed edition, exhibited at Romanian Design Week 2016 and 2017, can be found throughout the country, in your local Cărturești library, in friendly venues, in Bucharest, such as Dizainăr, Simbio, J’ai Bistrot, Lente, Burger Van Bistro, Bloom Specialty Coffee, Gram Bistro, Bernschutz & Co Tea, Librairie Kyralina, in Timișoara, at Balamuc / loc de joacă ș-altele, in Târgu Mureș at J’ai Bistrot and at the sea-side in Vama Veche, at Plaja de Carte.
The project features a travelling pop-up exhibition, which was on display at Kube Musette, Lente and Palatul Universul. The new media and print editorial projects were co-founded through the open call by AFCN, in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
feeder sound is a showcase of local and international talent alike comprised of DJ sets and fresh tunes meticulously curated in a sound collection which promotes mutual recognition and cultural exchange between musicians worldwide. More than 150+ podcasts are online, introducing a total of 45 h and 50 min of exciting, deep and immersive sounds.

The products are the result of current projects and campaigns: feeder.ro, Capitol / Cinema & Summer Theater and Un-hidden Bucharest, made in collaboration with some of the most remarkable contemporary artists.
Dare to add the products you like to the basket!
Un-hidden Bucharest – 3 new art interventions and a guided art journey into public space. Un-hidden Bucharest is an urban regeneration project conceived as a series of 3 urban signals / artistic interventions in the public space, co-created with the community, aiming at humanizing Bucharest and promoting its understanding and exploration through art.
CINEMA / TEATRUL DE VARĂ CAPITOL
Situated downtown Bucharest, the ensemble of historical monuments CAPITOL Cinema (LMI B-II-m-B-18683) and CAPITOL Summer Theatre (LMI B-II-m-B-19202) occupies the plot of land between 36 Elisabeta Bd. and 13 C-tin Mille St.
In 2017-2018, Save or Cancel proposes a cultural heritage awareness and sensitization campaign, with an application on Capitol Cinema / Theatre Summer, revealing the economic, social and educational potential of all abandoned cultural spaces in Romania, and the involvement of artists and the local community in trans-sectorial, multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects.
4 conferences, 3 art installations, 4 exhibitions and 3 open calls for ideas will reactivate the collective memory, reintegrate the monuments in the public circuit through democratic reinterpretations of the cultural space, explore the links between art, nature and the city.
