Ortiga is an artistic collective based in Banyoles, born in 2016. Its work aims to create spaces for meeting and artistic coexistence, where to research, spread and awaken environmental and social awareness.
Ortiga currently performs shows, immersive experiences, educational projects, courses and actions in the territory, at festivals, cultural programs, social, environmental projects and schools in national and international.
These different artistic proposals seek to make culture accessible to everyone, participatory, decentralized, and to offer a space where to experience, imagine and investigate from intimacy and sensitivity, and where together to discover paths for the regeneration of the territory and the social fabric, within an interdisciplinary and intergenerational framework.
Art, with its symbolic capacity, opens us to the emotion necessary to redo and invent new collective imaginaries, vital for an ecological and social awareness.
