Train delivery
25-27 July 2014 Gara de Nord, the North railway station of Bucharest became scene of so-called Train delivery. A train was parked at the 14th row (the last) and opposite to it, on the way to the train museum, different stands of public participation initiatives organised. They included protests supporting the protection of Rosia Montana gold region, or against fracturation, but also stands recreating a certain atmosphere.
The event leans at the first innitiative of giving a street to pedestrians, Street Delivery, and which started to be extended with the soon to be held Armeneasca street festival.
