The Resilience Festival (Festival della Resilienza) is an event promoted by ProPositivo, an association founded by a group of young Sardinians scattered around the world, united by an assumption: “if the time we spend complaining about problems would be invested in finding solutions, now we would have concrete, innovative and sustainable alternatives”.
Since 2016 ProPositivo has started a project to enhance urban and public spaces, through street art. One goal is to work on local identity during the global era, finding the points of contact or separation between tradition and innovation, between emigration and immigration, between past and future. The other goal is, to embellish the city and to stimulate the aesthetic and critical sense of the community.
For Festival of Resilience 2019, ProPositivo is launching an international street art competition for the realization of murals in Macomer (NU) and other little villages.
