"ART FOR CHANGE"

This year, on Saturday 30th of April, the 1st "Art for Change" Solidarity Art Festival was held in Bueu, organized by IES Johan Carballeira. The main goal of this festival is to achieve social change through art. This first edition focused on caring for the environment, especially the ocean, so the funds raised were sent to BDRI Association through the sponsorship of a whale. Attendees voted to choose the name of the whale. The most voted was "Udra". Schools and cultural associations from the area (Bueu, Cangas, Pontevedra) took part in this festival. In addition to the activities that took place in the different stands of the tent installed in the Plaza Massó, there were other activities such as concerts, exhibitions, workshops,... which were held in different places throughout our town. Our school participated in a stand called "Friends of Papirus" in which many diferent products and decorations related to the sea were sold. They were made by all the students of the different levels of our school, even the youngest!!

The students of pre-primary education from 4 years-old have made a new version of whirligigs and some pendants. Look at these nice contributions:

The primary students from years 1 and 2 have made nice decorative magnets with the silhouettes of some sea animals. Look at some of their jobs:
