ÚS Barcelona, the festival of urban art and public space, comes to ELISAVA!

02.10.2018 to 07.10.2018


ÚS Barcelona is an itinerant urban art and public space festival which takes place in disused areas and spaces of the city that have lost their social function. The main aim of this festival is to recover the value of these areas, providing them with new life and new uses through urban art and citizen participation.

The festival will take place from 2 to 7 of October 2018 at the former prison La Model, in which the festival will offer a creative stage and an own work exhibition linked to La Model, generating creative synergies with different university centers such as ELISAVA. The main aim of these creations is to build a collective narrative about the former prison.

Join US Barcelona!

If you're taking an ELISAVA degree, we would like to invite you to join the team that will participate in the creation of a proposal for this creative space.

Being part of this team means to attend an intensive workshop tutored by Gastón Lisak and Daniele Porretta on the 10, 11 and 12 of September; present and defend the proposal the 14 of September; and to collaborate in the assembly and dismantling of the exhibition the days 26, 27 and 28 of September and the 8 and 9 of October.

If you're interested, send an email to with your resume and portfolio (3 A3 pages maximum, PDF format and/or video). Skills in video editing, sound, screening, installations and interactive graph will be considered.

If you want more information, write an email to or visit the Festival's website.
