Art With Me is arriving in Tulum. It is the first interactive festival to celebrate the arts and the commitment to sustainability. Its mission “is to enrich the local community, preserve the natural environment and strengthen the artistic development of Tulum through conscious and sustainable practices”. As a result, the event aims to raise awareness in both local and foreign communities. The idea is to face pressing environmental issues at a global scale.
Art With Me Raises Environmental Awerness
The event will take place bewteen May 10th and 13th of the present year. It will host a collection of experiences that will highlight artistic innovations. The five main mediums will be culinary, visual, sustainable, cultural and experimental. They will raise awareness about all the environmental issues affecting Tulum through the arts.
The activations at Art With Me are based on seven core pillars: art, food, drink, dance, care, breathe, and love. They each englobe an artistic aspect to get people to realize the impact of their existence on the planet. The collaborative effort will bring together professionals from many industries. Artists, chefs, musicians, dancers, mixologists and more will inspire generations of change for the better.
Pablo Vargas’ Ilumina
Many talented and highly-skilled professionals will be present making a change. Most noteworthy, Pablo Vargas and his structure, Ilumina. This is probably one of the center pieces of the event. The interactive sculpture displays light and sound, powered by the heart of the participants in a collective experience. Participants are connected through sensors and their heartbeats activate the light and sound show.
Moreover, the experience is meant to highlight the interconnectivity we all have amongst each other and with our planet. The sculpture was originally presented at Burning Man Festival in 2017.
Conscious and Sustainable Practices
The 4-day immersive festival wishes to create a conscience in the local community. Through this they hope to inherit sustainable practices. In 2017, 140,000 tons of trash were generated in Tulum alone. For this reason, it has faced backlask about the self-imposed eco-friendly label. Similarly, the poor solid waste disposal has caused an increase in in trash pollution. The city has fought hard to slow down development. However, the growing demand for tourism threatens its natural resources. This is mainly due to a lack of adequate solid waste management. As a result, Art with Me has made that the central environmental topic.
