Back again in the run up to Christmas, Drap-Art ’15, the International Creative Recycling Festival of Catalonia, reminds us of the responsibility that should accompany the frenzy of consumerism associated with this time of year. The festival will be split into eight categories to demonstrate the possibilities of creative recycling: group exhibitions, intervention in public spaces, space for thought and discussion, traditional art and design, workshops, performances, audiovisuals and environmental cinema. With the aim of creating a space to display cutting-edge creative recycling, the festival looks to strike a balance between local, international, established and emerging artists, with the development of creative recycling always the focus. With its mantra of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Drap-Art—founded in Barcelona in 1995—seeks to acquaint the public with the dangerous effects of overconsumption and encourages people to consume more responsibly.
