What is Fira Mediterrània?
Fira Mediterrània of Manresa is a performing arts marketplace gathering together new artistic creations inspired by the distinctive cultural traits of Catalonia and the Mediterranean region. It has been held every year since 1998 and has become a setting for exchange professionals that sell and buy productions.
Fira is an interdisciplinary event and the programme covers all artistic languages – visual arts, circus, dance, exhibitions, music, storytelling and theatre.
The programmed shows are in different formats - small, medium or large-scale - in venues or in the street, aimed both at adult and at family audiences.
19th edition will be held from 6th to 9th October 2016.
Arts projects can be submitted under two main themes:
Popular Culture, based on elements that include the transfer of heritage, the crossover between contemporary creation and traditional regional culture, participation and the increase of the social base of culture.
