Gargar Mural and Rural Art Festival was born from the need and the strong determination to add a distinguishing value to the village of Penelles in Spain. The objective is to appreciate, encourage and give visibility to artists and alternative ways of artistic expression in public rural areas.
Penelles is a village in the province of Lleida and autonomous community of Catalonia, Spain. The festival wants to promote the artistic culture in the rural world, turning the village of Penelles into a reference point, engaging people in a unique project of which we can be proud. Also, it aims at energizing the village and promote tourism. The second edition is held on May 5, 6, 7 – 2017.
The festival hopes to generate resources that allow them to correct the effects of time and the deterioration of their streets, re inspiring hope in their neighbors.
