Art Object Trend is a creative recycling and artistic intervention in the environmental art project created in 2019.
Director in charge: Carolina Rivas. Project funded by: Departamento de Cultura del Distrito de Sant Andreu del Ayuntamiento de Barcelona.
Art Object Trend consisted of conducting art object workshops from the waste of the objects. The Art Object workshops were led by Pilar Veléz, Daoud Sarhandi, and Marta Capa. The workshops were located in Baró de Viver, in Distrito de Santa Andreu. The activity was designed to enhance creativity and reduce negative environmental impact. Scrap materials like plastics, wood, metals, and clothes were used. The goal was to inspire the artists in the neighbourhood, and its surroundings, to participate in the workshops and/or the Art Object exhibition. Thus, promoting the artwork that was created, subsequently generating visibility for the artists to foster equal opportunities.
