The Benidorm City Council, through the Departments of Historical and Cultural Heritage and Beaches, Environment and Sustainability, is organising next Saturday, June 8, the First Urban Art Day, a pioneering initiative that aims to combine urban art with sustainability and to care for the environment.

For this reason, both councils have also scheduled a series of parallel activities to encourage this day for all participants and people who come to follow it. The day will run from 10 in the morning until 2:30 p.m. and from the beginning, there will be a lot of animation.

Thus, at 10:15 the performance of 'Acid Pimp DJ and Break' will arrive and a quarter of an hour later the performance of the Boogie Block urban dance school will take place. At 11:00 there will be a sneaker customization workshop and also a collective graffiti by Alicante Colors. At 11:30 a.m. the Boogie Block urban dance school will once again take center stage and at noon a freestyle exhibition has been scheduled. At 12:45 it will be DJ Force's turn, who will liven up the day with his music until the end of the day at 2:30 p.m.

The objective of this day is to “give a second life to different spaces and elements of public furniture, intervening in them with the best proposals of the urban artists who participate,” as explained by the councillor for Beaches and Environment, Mónica Gómez. The initiative will take place on the outdoor esplanade of the Parc de Foietes, in a participatory event open to the public, coinciding with the celebration of World Environment Day, which is commemorated on June 5. In addition, the attending public will be able to vote for their favourite proposal, which will be one that will serve to illustrate the poster for the next edition.

In this first edition, the canvas on which the works will be captured will be the old trash cans removed from the beaches, 80 in total, which once intervened will return to the sandy beaches as support for the works of the participating artists.

“We thought that the old litter bins could not be left without any use and it was decided, as a flag of the sustainability that we are so committed to, to give them a second life and, at the same time, bring to our sandy beaches the art that already existed in many other spaces of the city,” said Gómez.

The City Council will provide the participants with all the necessary materials to capture their proposals on the bins during the day, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and once the intervention is over, “the bins will return to the beaches as a showcase where the proposals can be displayed. of each of the artists.”

The Councilor for Historical and Cultural Heritage, Ana Pellicer, has stressed that this day intends to “attract consolidated or potential urban artists to Benidorm who want to capture their work in our city and expose it to the general public.”
