For the 5th year, Canal180 will host the 180 Creative Camp - an 8 day Media Arts Academy, from 3rd to 10th July in Abrantes, Portugal. We aim to provide a time and place for young creators, invited artists and thinkers to learn together, exchange experiences and give birth to new collaborations and projects.
180 Creative Camp is looking for young bubbling creative spirits to come to Abrantes and take part of the daily workshops, talks and activities, embracing the city and leaving their mark through. Everyone who’s involved in disciplines such as graphic design, architecture, art, music, video, photography, illustration or installation is welcome to get a ticket and take part in this event! It’s an opportunity to contact multiple well-known artists and also with other participants. Everyone is encouraged to get creative and put some ideas in practice during the week!
This edition will inclue with many interesting names within the international creative world: Boa Mistura, the Spanish team known for their extraordinary graphical interventions at public spaces; Sean Dunne, a film director documenting the most bizarre realities around the world; photographer and cultural manager Frank Kalero, former resident at Benetton's Fabrica in Italy, curator of photography festivals in France, Spain, India and Brasil and one of the founders of the Ojo de Pez magazine; Javier Peña Ibáñez, director of Concéntrico, festival of architecture and design, whose work is well known mainly for inviting citizens to (re)think their surrounding environments; the founder of Intern’s Magazine, Alec Dudson, a remarkable publication showcasing amazing creators and debating the creative world, with its perks and downsides; the film director Isaac Niemand, with a wide spectacular work that includes documentary, animation, commercials and music videos; illustrator and designer José Cardoso, famous for its strong characters and colorful identities.
Interaction with the city and its people is one of the main characteristics of the event. Therefore, along with remaining program, we develop "Stores Art Attack," a challenge for artists and participants to create projects along with the traditional street shops of the city. There are also activities such as talk sessions with the artists, movies, portfolio reviews and music concerts opened to the local community.
Since 2012 people from all over the world, from Los Angeles to Copenhagen, Santiago de Chile to Berlin, have come to 180 Creative Camp showing their best. This event has been a challenge and a pleasure to make and we want to make it even better in its 5th edition!
