Cultural Summer 2024: JazzUP and ArtUP, sensory concerts, underwater art, and memorable experiences across the country

The Cultural Association CultART announces an exceptional cultural summer under the umbrella of the concept festivals JazzUP and ArtUP. Between July 8 and September 5, CultART initiates a series of events designed to celebrate and democratize access to culture, and to promote fine arts and music in an authentic, innovative, and effervescent manner, creating a remarkable mix between the local and international cultural scene.


JazzUP and ArtUP will be present in various iconic locations in Romania, particularly in Constanța, Constanța County, Tulcea, Brașov, Brașov County, and Bucharest, offering the public remarkable, completely free artistic experiences. Among the unique experiences is an exhibition organized below the level of the Black Sea, where a series of paintings by the famous artist Nicolae Grigorescu and others will be displayed underwater, or a sensory concert.

“JazzUP and ArtUP are more than just festivals; they represent our vision regarding access to art and culture. We aimed to create bridges between artists and the public through these two concepts, wanting to place the local cultural scene on the international map. Access to culture and creating a real framework for its materialization is essential for developing a vibrant and prosperous society. This year, we continue our efforts to create a strong artistic community, to offer and open new horizons for talented young people while delighting the public with lively moments beyond the everyday,” says Valentin-Ștefan Ștefăniță, president of the Cultural Association CultArt and founder of the two concepts.

Democratizing the local cultural scene and integrating the international scene 

JazzUP and ArtUP enrich the cultural landscape through an effervescent mix of local and international scenes, thus creating a unified dimension that transforms Romania into an artistic attraction hub. 

JazzUP brings to the stage both established artists and talented young people. With its authenticity and spontaneity, jazz represents an effervescent and lively lifestyle, a way of living as authentically as possible. The performances offered on the JazzUP stages range from classic jazz to fusion and improvisation, culminating in sensory concerts. 

On the other hand, ArtUP is a celebration of visual arts, transforming public spaces into art galleries open to the public.
