The project entitled ’Urban P.E.’, realized within Placcc festival, allowed people to exercise for free in the streets of Palotanegyed for the duration of 4 days with the help of exercise bars fixed to the facades of houses.

It is known that among Palotanegyed’s inhabitants there is a high percentage of intellectuals, who spend most of their time sitting, which is one of the main causes of today’s spinal problems.

The aim of the project was to draw attention to the fact that by doing such exercises one can prevent spinal problems occurring.
