'Six Missing Women'—Julia Dierickx-Brax
2 of 2
WeArt Festival came into being over a coffee in the Born. It was created from the desire to make contemporary art more available and to fill some of the gaps missing in the "mainstream". It also aims to facilitate the visibility of artists and to encourage discourse between the artist and the viewer. The team is working to make the event into an annual happening.
The project encompasses the areas of New Media Art, Street Art, Graffiti, Photography, Illustration and Visual Arts.
The event takes place at many locations around the city including the Born Cultural Centre where the New Media exhibition will be held.
Some highlights include:
Street Art: Live Painting in collaboration with Murs Lliures and Wall People. Oct 12, 9am at the Parc de les Tres Xemeneies on Paralel.
Street Art exhibition: Oct 11th til Oct 18th, Studiostore, C/Comerç, 17
Photography: October 16th to November 11th at the Centre Cívic Patí Llimona, C/Regomir 3.
WeArt Market: Oct 20th, Galería Miscelanea, C/Guardia 10
