Drap-Art´19 23º International Festival of Sustainable Art
Novembre 15 to  january 19
Entrance hall, Maritime Museum of 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. Many times, throughout the history of Human kind, Art has pointed out new directions: Da Vinci, with his flying machines, anticipated aviation, architects such as Frank Loyd Wright or Heinrich Tessenow built the first sustainable houses, which by their location, orientation and conception did not need heating or air conditioning.

Once again, art might point out the way, make that essential spark explode in the public to make emerge the will to be part of a positive change, of which we are all actors and beneficiaries at the same time.
Now, that climate change is already an accepted reality, that we all know the problem of microplastics, that migrations due to political, economic and natural disasters are increasingly frequent, it is time to seek positive solutions, to realize that it is up to us to cause a change of course, to realize that taking small actions we can achieve great feats, if enough people do so. Let’s take the reins of our destiny and give support to the young people from around the world who are fighting for their future!

Mar de Fuga, Mar de cura
The project “Sea to Escape, Sea to Cure” culminates in a photo installation and illuminated houses created by young people of 14 to 19 years of age who have started a migration process without an adult reference. The project consisted in approximating them to the Mediterranean Sea again, through a creative space of freedom where they could express and channel emotions, feelings and dreams, where they could interchange and share ideas, cultural values, enhance the acquisition of self-knowledge and knowledge of the other. By means of participative artistic and sportive activities that promote the development of environmental awareness and individual and collective action in the sector of recycling and sustainability of the Mediterranean, the project wants to provoke a change in attitude towards their own problems derived of the migratory process in which they find themselves.

Teleduca www.teleduca.org
Teleduca promotes experiential learning using and recombining all kinds of languages: audiovisual, sound, visual, oral and written. Teleduca began its work in 1996 and was formally established in 2000. It works from a socio-educational perspective, bringing out the interests, abilities and previous knowledge of the people and social groups with which it collaborates.
Here Teleduca presents four audiovisual pieces made by children based on a participatory work methodology that contribute to reflect on the issue of immigration at the maritime borders.

Colloquium-conversation: “Globalization, borders, health and Human Rights”
The world is a space for all. Borders are geopolitical control areas often assaulted to invade territories and exploit their resources, preventing people from rebuilding their lives in the countries that promote this destruction. The globalization of resources destroys local economies. We live with the free movement of money, but we do not accept that of the victims of plunder and wars. This socio-political and economic context affects individual and community health. In short, the neoliberal structure submits us and prevents us from developing according to our capabilities and human rights. The colloquium will revolve around this reality and the possible ways of re-thinking it, proposing a transformation of our gaze and action.
