WASH – the first Social Art Festival! Apply now, get invited!
In connection with the Viva con Agua Wassertage 2011 the first social art festival with the topic WASH (Water Sanitation Hygiene) will take place from November 10th – 22nd 2011 in Hamburg.
The festival sets the topic WASH in a totally new and artistic concept: eleven international artists will be invited to an art camp and work on the topic WASH. The camp will take place in the creative cultural area called Schanzenviertel in the centre of Hamburg. During the ten days the art camp can be visited. In the nights public events will take place to gain more awareness to the WASH festival and camp. At the end of the week the art pieces will be presented in an exhibition and auctioned afterwards.
Artists from around the world can apply now until October 8th to take part in the WASH Camp. The WASH Jury consisting of credible representatives from the art scene like Alain Bieber (rebel:art), DAIM, Tasek, RKT one or JUST as well as several Partners of WASH elects 22 finalists. The 11 attendants will be finally selected via online voting from October 10th – 15th to take part at the camp in Hamburg.
Besides the camp, public events, workshops and several actions will take place to gain public attention and collect donations. Musicians like DJ Mad (Beginner), Tyree Cooper (Chicago/Berlin) and iconAclass (New Jersey) are supporting the Festival with their shows. The proceeds of the Festival go to the actual water project of Viva con Agua and the Welthungerhilfe in Etiopia.
