MIRA Live Visual Arts Festival

Concept

MIRA is a live visual arts festival held annually in the city of Barcelona.
Different spaces and buildings of the city are used, a way to spread our different cultural initiatives, such as concerts, installations, conferences or workshops regarding the visual innovation.

It’s a cultural event that bases its proposal into offering cutting-edge music shows in direct association with visuals, installations and education.
The festival aims to be an European meeting point in the visual arts field, bringing new creations, unexpected symbiosis, sharing knowledge and making musical and visual artistic collaborations possible.

What differentiates MIRA from other festivals and cultural activities related to music and visual arts, is the ability to interweave the visual and music elements to transform them into a unique experience for the public.

Values

MIRA aims to break the stigma that place the image as a simple addition of a musical performance to make it the center of the show.

We want to create genuine sensory experiences.

The festival, through multidisciplinary collaborations, enables the emergence of new projects and relationships among participants from collectives, associations and groups linked in any way with the visual creation (producers, professionals, record labels, etc.), and provides a robust network that could lead to a possible international expansion.
