The Drap-Art recycling festival showcases art trends that use found objects and discarded materials as a resource for creating art, sculpture and design. Founded in Barcelona in 1995, Drap-Art is the non-profit organisation behind the festival, and is dedicated to the promotion of creative recycling through festivals, exhibitions, markets and workshops. Drap-Art ’14, the International Festival of Recycling Art of Catalonia, is a platform for emerging artists, designers, craftspeople and other creative professionals from all over Europe who seek to do something a bit more useful and creative with their rubbish. Through group exhibitions of art and designer objects made from recyclable materials, a traditional art and design market, performances, workshops and environmental cinema, Drap-Art makes a statement for a sustainable planet. With this annual festival, Drap-Art functions as a campaign to acquaint the public with the dangerous effects of overconsumption and encourages people to consume more responsibly by respecting the three Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle.
