Description

MAKE Festival is a 10-day long celebration that brings together between 50 and 200 people from all over the world with the aim of creating a place for debate and practice of arts, architecture, construction and design.

MAKE FESTIVAL brings together the different agents and spheres of art design and construction (students, collectives, professionals, the local population ...) to question and research the contemporary role of the rural world, far from the traditional paternalistic view, and the role or art and architecture as positive agents of transformation, through workshops, exhibitions and talks.

It is structured in a day-time program in which around 10 projects / workshops or design, arts or construction fields are developed, and a night-time program (coming soon!) , In which scenic arts such music, theater, cinema or performances creates a non-stop common celebration.

The workshops vary from size, length and discipline, visit our official website to check them all! www.makefestival.org

Every workshop / project is open to participation at all times, from design to execution, and participants change their positions constantly. Suddenly, projects and people are merged. Materials are adapted to availability, typologies are thought about and questioned, and thus the original project has been revised in ways that weren't envisioned before. Such constructions are spontaneous, born from many different minds and hands.


MAIN OBJECTIVES

  • Analyze the development of rural areas related to the growing urbanism.

  • Reflect about alternatives for the border between rural and urban.

  • Enhance the sustainability towards the environment, society and economics.

  • Shape a tool to establish contact, learn and respect the chosen area.

  • Stimulate the exchange of knowledge and experience between the visitors and the local party promoting interculturality.
