Hopscotch is an art project that aims to create a series of large-scale comic strips and other murals on buildings in unfinished, dilapidated or abandoned areas. The murals are conceived as part of a unique, open-ended comic story with several intertwined narrative strands that unfold throughout Nova Gorica and Gorizia, regardless of administrative or linguistic boundaries. 
The project is inspired by the  work of Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar, specifically the ""interactive"" novel after which the project is named, and which can be read in a variety of ways. In this way the readers and viewers of the murals become literary travellers, discovering new paths and locations in the often forgotten urban peripheries the cross-border region. The aim is to share common aspects of European history in the streets and encourage visitors to cross the border and complete the story. As part of Hopscotch, Nova Gorica and Gorizia will host street artists and muralists from the surrounding area and around the world.
