Festival Atl Emporda – Ciudad Jardin – 1st Edition – 2016
The festival stems from the work of Ozz Barcelona, a creative community which is committed to the slow movement, by promoting art and fostering creativity. The proposal for a meeting of artists in a unique and privileged location of Catalunya like Alt Empordà comes with the hope that new forms of expression will emerge – a work in progress enhanced by the beautiful surroundings.
The mission of Ozz Barcelona is to create a framework for artists to collaborate and experiment, with the long term purpose of educating the general public about the importance of protecting the environment.
The first edition of the festival will be an exploration of processes and possibilities, with a view to establishing an international awards programme, which includes residencies in the village of Ventalló for artists, whose work will provide the impetus for the second edition of the festival.
Exhibition Dee-Dee-Wee-Doom-Pa-Di-Dee – 2014
A zapp culture of makers and their work
Exhibition DEE-DEE-WEE-DOOM-PA- DI-DEE is a dynamic landscape in which visitors and participating designers meet in a role play. Television sets filled with recent projects and products of young talent and established studios function as swatches of contemporary developments in the worlds of design and applied art. Behind these scenes works of carefully selected designers, artists and architects are presented in a more extensive and personal way. A zapp culture of makers and their work.
On a daily base three golden tickets can be won which grant the lucky winners direct access to a personal meeting and workshop or masterclass with one of the participating makers. The exhibition landscape in action is programmed by young curator Jules van den Langenberg and takes place in one of the largest industrial halls on creative industrial terrain Sectie C.
