Romania’s Can Design Festival creates a “CAN CITY”

Can Design Festival is the first festival of its kind in Romania,  and is open to everyone, regardless of age. It  aimed to translate the collection of empty drink cans cans into art and encourage small and great artists to make original objects from their cans.

The first edition of the contest had the theme “CAN CITY” –  with each object created replicating an object from urban are just using drink cans, participants are encouraged to create original objects, handmade, either household or collection items, clothing, accessories, tools, etc.

The Can Design Festival project provides an opportunity to help the environment by combining the act of recycling with the passion to create and being an artist.

Following the conclusion of the 2014 Can Design Festival Every Can Counts aims to exhibit the best works submitted in the contest in temporary exhibitions in the coming year, in public places, as part of its campaign to educate and encourage the population to recycle more.
