Drap-Art ’19 – sustainable art festival
15th November 2019 - 19th January 2020
The Drap-Art International Festival of Sustainable Art is running from 15 November to 19 January 2020 in Barcelona.
For 23 years Drap-Art has been giving visibility to artists, designers and artisans who are committed to the shift towards a more sustainable society, both in terms of nature, social action, and the economy.
Described as a collective exhibition with works of art that are born, ‘sometimes to denounce the unbridled current consumerism, sometimes as evidence of the enormous amount of waste we generate, other times from the romanticism of the artists who capture in their works the desire for a better environment’ – yet in all cases with ‘the objective of creating social awareness to achieve a more sustainable development, both from an environmental point of view and in relation to current social problems’.
Drap-Art has been present in more than 16 countries and in its 22 years of activity the project was extended to the Americas, with an annual event in Barcelona, Montevideo, Pittsburgh, and since 2017 also in Buenos Aires, spreading the work of more than 780 artists and conducting awareness-raising activities for all audiences.
