In the spring of 2019. we started organizing one day pop-up events in Academia Club Ghettto and offered the town of Split something new and different. Our first summer was amazing! We kicked off the season on beginning of May, offering city of Split something new and different. As summer season started to pick up, in July we decided to kick it up a notch with performances that gave our pop-up events at Academia Club Ghetto a whole new dimension and brought new audience. Once again, a big thank you to Veljko for an intimate evening with his animated films and music vignettes, Lucija and her “Crowds” which continued to catch the attention of new visitors and customers week after week, our very own Svagi, who enchanted us all with his on the spot spray painting act of Sigh, and all the DJs for creating a great musical atmosphere.
In August we decided to focus on the Split Nomads and promote the gallery concept itself. With the exception of the New Gondoliers band the rest of the month was dedicated to the Split Nomads and their artworks. We invited professional and amateur DJs, who with their eclectic selection of music added to the atmosphere.
And so, Spetember came we came to our last Thursday of the Summer 2019 season. Despite the hot Split summer, we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of both local and foreign visitors. We had last-minute wedding gift purchases, enthusiasts who were thrilled to buy something original in the city of Split, as well as customers who knew exactly what they wanted. All in all, it’s nice to hear in a casual conversation, “Yeah, I heard of Nomad, it’s that new gallery…” , tourists who came to us by recommendation of tour guides, managers of hostels and hotels, and other friends of Split Nomad Gallery.
We should write a pretty long thank you list of fans and friends, but let’s leave it for another time. Thank you 2019 for being good to us. See you soon with ever expending Split Nomad crew, new venues and new, bigger events.
