26 years of Drap-Art

XXVI International Festival of Sustainable Art of Catalonia

Drap-Art’22 Al Gòtic! will be held once again in emblematic spaces of the Gothic neighborhood such as the Borsí and Villa del Arte Galleries, Plaza Real, Plaza del Rey and others to be confirmed, from November 17 to December 21, 2022. Given the increasingly urgent need to provoke a change towards a more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable world, Drap-Art once again upholds art as a tool for social transformation and invites contemporary and urban artists, designers, artisans, indefinable and multifaceted creators, artivists, amateurs and creative people of all kinds, to say their own, presenting their projects to our call.

Due to the economic hardships we are currently suffering, we cannot cover the transport costs of the works or assign fixed fees for the production costs of artworks created specifically for the festival, therefore the exhibitions will be held with already produced pieces.
We defend that artists have to be payed for their work, like any professional other from other sectors, and that only when this is done, can the world of culture contribute its full transforming potential to society, so we ask you to include the production cost of your works, other than the exhibition pieces, such as installation proposals, interventions, performances, performing arts, concerts, workshops and presentations. We are doing our best to achieve the funding to produce them in case they are selected. If we do not make it in this edition, we will have to postpone the programming of your project until we get the necessary budget, and we will reserve you a space for the programming of your piece in a future edition.
