INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS, INVENTIONS AND A PERFORMANCE WITH RECYCLED INSTRUMENTS ON ‘EL ‘DÍA RONDA LIMPIA’, 17 OF MAY
The first event of Ronda Limpia have gained interest far beyond the small Andalucian town. The famous Canadian artists Suzy Birstein, commissioned to make ceramic pieces for the nominees for the 2008 OSKAR Academy Awards, will participate in the recycled art competition. The organizers hope that this will create great interest amongst the general public. In addition to students, teachers and hospital personnel from Ronda, the competition has already gotten participants from Costa del Sol, Granada, France and Montreal!
Ronda Limpia is a public engagement campaign, which aims to promote and encourage the three R’s. (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle), as well as creating more awareness around our collective responsibility to keep our city, neighbourhood and environment clean. The group works with symbolic clean-ups of public spaces, press conferences, presenting diplomas to the ‘green entity of the month’ and of course, organizing the first annual day dedicated to the three R’s in the historic ‘city of dreams’.
The día del Ronda Limpia will present a musical performance with recycled instruments, including a workshop on how to make recycled instruments, under the supervision of the group Vibra-tó. We will also be offering an interactive exhibit of robots and a presentation on how to make a recycled ‘Boom Box’ presented by the Ronda inventor and teacher Miguel Ángel Racero. Other activities will be a parade of ‘clean’ dogs, several workshops and presentations and a collective exposition of all the works entered into the recycled art competition. Children, adults, artists and anyone creative from Ronda or anywhere else in the world are invited to participate in the competition.
The Día Ronda Limpia is celebrated on the 17th of May, the international day of recycling. All are invited to come and enjoy this free event, where the whole family can enjoy, learn and become inspired by Ronda Limpia.
