From July 5th to 12th 180 Creative Camp will invade the center of Portugal, bringing to Abrantes unique creative collaborations between several celebrated national and international artists in areas like street art, video, design, music and architecture.
Everyone is invited to participate in this special week in Abrantes, watch and take part in the activities - from concerts, to workshops and talks - and work with the artists that will be a part of 180 Creative Camp.
Street artist INSA, director Alex Turvey, electronic musician Iago Lewis, German collective Plastique Fantastique and multidisciplinary artist Christopher Derek Bruno are some of the names that 180 Creative Camp is bringing to Abrantes during the week of July 5th to 12th.
Recently awarded with the quality label EFFE – Europe For Festivals, Festivals For Europe - an initiative supported by the European Union with the purpose of selecting festivals that are deeply committed to the arts, their communities and Europe - 180 Creative Camp transforms once again this city in the center of Portugal into a creative center for the media arts, promoting unique artistic collaborations and inviting everyone to be a part of the event.
The collaboration projects will unite Alex Turvey and Iago Lewis in the production of the short movie “SOM”; INSA (who recently created the world’s largest in Rio de Janeiro) will be helped by Portuguese street artists to develop a major project curated by British magazine Very Nearly Almost that combines street art and media arts; and musician PZ and director Alexandre Azinheira will work together in a music video for the new album by the Portuguese artist.
There are many reasons to visit Abrantes during this week, thanks to all the activities presented by 180 Creative Camp, like daily talks with the invited artists, workshops and several concerts in the historical center of Abrantes during the nights of the week, with musicians like PZ, Os Príncipes, FEL, Tøuløuse and Albatre.
Parallel to these activities, the creativity event will launch an innovating exhibition in Portugal, Analog Human Digital, that gathers 10 groundbreaking design studios from Portugal and Brazil: Estudio PUM, Dmtr.org, R2 Design, Epiforma, Bolos Quentes, atelier d’alves, DSType Foundry, This is Pacifica, Silvadesigners and Non Verbal. This exhibition is the result of a partnership between Canal180 - the producer of 180 Creative Camp - and Shutterstock. One year ago, this NY based company presented Analog Human Digital’s concept in Berlin with some of the best design studios in Germany.
For this 2014 edition, the event presents workshops not only directed to Portuguese people, but to everyone who may be interested in one of the several artistic areas. Walk with me, for instance, is a Spanish map design concept with a huge success, that will travel to 180 Creative Camp in a workshop coordinated by Julià Roig and Andrés Lozano. German collective Plastique Fantastique will also be at the event to coordinate a workshop that will result in different pneumatic structures installed in the historical center of Abrantes.
Last April, in anticipation to this creativity week, 180 Creative Camp launched two open calls for artists: the Open Call for Urban Intervention Projects and the Open Call for Stores Art Attack Projects. For the first open call, 63 proposals from 20 different countries were considered. Awarded with 5.000€, Domesticity, by Colombian authors María Mazzanti and Martín Ramirez, was the winning proposal, which will be implemented in Abrantes for 180 Creative Camp. For the second open call, 15 projects were selected, from countries like Germany, USA, Austria and Poland, whose authors will work with the local community with the purpose of stimulating traditional businesses in Abrantes during the week of the event.
Created in 2012 in Vila Nova de Cerveira, in the north of Portugal, this is the 5th edition of the creativity event developed by Canal180, a TV channel dedicated to art, music and culture. Since then, 180 Creative Camp has celebrated its first international edition in Italy and hosted incredible artists like Mac DeMarco, Hiro Murai, Ella&Pitr and Florentijn Hofman.
