22nd edition of the International Festival of Sustainable Art of Catalonia
08 and 09 December 2018, from 11am to 8pm
60 works of art, 50 artists, live art, installations, workshops, conferences, performances, gastronomy and live music during a weekend to raise awareness about the environmental and social problems in the Mediterranean area and the Catalan coast.

During a weekend Drap-Art 18 will turn the Maritime Museum of Barcelona into a center of Mediterranean culture: works of art to reclaim more sustainable seas and oceans, Mediterranean gastronomy to claim local and Km0 products, artists creating live installations to show that garbage can have a second life and, at the same time, denounce social inequality, live music to bring Mediterranean sounds to the city, workshops with activities for all audiences.
The objective is to look at the social, ecological and environmental problems of the seas and the Mediterranean in order to achieve collective responses towards a more sustainable development.
In addition, different projects and organizations will participate to inspire everyone to join the action for a more sustainable world!
