WHAT IS IT?
DesOrdes Creativas is an international urban art festival that takes place in Ordes (A Coruña ) after six consecutive years.
Each year the festival acts as an effective tool of social dialogue and constant urban regeneration, revitalising old deteriorated spaces. It has helped to turn Ordes- a village well known for its ugly urbanism- into a big open-air museum; also a public one, free and accessible to everyone. It has also contributed to place this village on the map, creating an attractive touristic destination for restless travellers and loyal urban art lovers
More than forty artists have participated in the festival since its first edition, providing them a window to the world; a platform in which to materialize and exhibit their work in a format accessible for all.
Consequently, this event helps to dignify and support urban art in general, and the work of local artists in particular, acting as a catapult that shows the world what’s happening in the streets of Galicia.
In addition to inviting the best international and national artists to participate in the festival, the organization supports the local Galician artists, who are a big part of the festival’s programme.
