Daniel was born in Santa Coloma, Spain and he devoted his self to fine arts. His wish is to organize art festival in his local place which will be important for protection of their culture.
Daniel was selected for the project “European Youth at the frontlines of active citizenship: A Roadmap towards a collective South-North-East-West Momentum” organized by Volunteers Centre Skopje and supported by European Commission due to Erasmus+ European Youth Together programme.
Explain your project to us.
– My project consists of youth and emerging art festival which seeks to become the starting point of a new ecosystem for local contemporary art in Santa Coloma.
What objective does the festival have?
– The festival, which will last a week, intends to show that it is possible to create an artistic ecosystem in the local area, creating support networks which can keep on operating from then on from this initiative that seeks to be the roots of the movement. It will be a participative festival, which will take place in various places in the city, trying to make the artistic value of the area visible. Including local references, since I am convinced that it is necessary to count on these types of references to find their own roots.
What impact do you think it is going to have?
– It will be a week in which the inhabitants, institutions and public spaces of Santa Coloma will set in motion collectively, transforming the space and social conscience surrounding contemporary and emerging art in the city. Apart from vitalizing culture in Santa Coloma, it will also revive the nurturing of local and emerging artists, which I think, by my experience, is of paramount importance for protecting our culture.
