Dreamers Art Festival 2015
A group of young Playa del Carmen residents from around Mexico and the world, look to create an alternative to the beach while creating awareness and educating through art
From November 6 to November 14, Playa del Carmen plays hosts to the first annual Dreamers Art Festival. The brainchild of a group of young Playa del Carmen residents from around Mexico and the world who were looking to create an environment beyond the beach.
By creating the festival, they hope to generate cultural alternatives for residents and visitors by creating spaces with contemporary and urban art all while raising cultural awareness and promoting education.
Their hope is that this cutting edge event will not only bring art to Playa but generate income for local businesses and artisans.
In addition to art spaces throughout Playa, the group has a keen interest in art therapy and supporting children within the autism spectrum. Through the Dreamers Art Festival, they will provide children opportunities for expression and nonverbal communication, helping to resolve emotional conflicts while encouraging self-awareness and personal development.
The contemporary and urban art festival will be held in various locations throughout the city and will include international, national, and local urban artists. Events will include exhibitions, activities, conferences, bike tours, film screenings, as well as, music and art workshops. An art exhibit will be set up at the Palm Hotel on 8th street between 5th and 10th Ave. for the duration of the festival.
Around 15 muralists, as well as art and film specialists, will represent more than half a dozen countries including Mexico, the United States, Germany, Portugal, Italy, and Chile.
