BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival takes place every year in Ibiza during July and August since 2011. It is completely independent, self financed and all activities are for free. The Festival`s aim is to encourage the audience to be proactive and “to think” about a certain theme, usually imminent social issues, that is closely related to our daily lives.
The totally independent festival is changing the face of Ibiza. Uniting people to new arts, music, technology and education.
Ibiza, renowned for its entertainment and beautiful beaches is becoming a cultural destination. Thanks to the BLOOP initiative. During the month long celebration, arts such as the following take place: graffiti, interactive installations, fine arts, sculptures, video mappings, photography, creative workshops for children/adults, music sessions, concerts, performances and many more all for free.
From cinema and fine arts to street art and children’s workshops. The range of arts and activities in the program is extremely wide rendering the event truly universal. A museum of fine arts, new arts and music, BLOOP Headquarters; a long term project to convert an entire city into a true gallery, OpenAir.Gallery; sunset hours music sessions, BLOOP’n’ Sunsets; innovative creative workshops, BLOOP KIDS; and open air projections of self-produced experimental films, Drive-in BLOOP are just some of the events within the eclectic program.
