Excerpt from the official presentation:

"Fabrica de Pensule / The Paintbrush Factory is a collective space of production and distribution of contemporary art as an independent cultural center. The project is initiated by a group of artists, curators, cultural managers and producers from Cluj, animated by the idea that art creates a real impact on the communities.

The center is located in the former Paintbrush Factory and gathers, on a surface of 2000 sqm, 29 contemporary art spaces: artists’ studios, galleries and cultural organizations active in fields like visual arts, contemporary dance and theater. The center aims at setting an independent creative space on the map of the local community, as well as on the international artistic scene.
Fabrica de Pensule / The Paintbrush Factory contributes to urban development, by reclaiming an industrial heritage site, activated as a space for community life."
