With this welcome pack we would like to introduce you to the Elements concert series, its intention and spirit, and share all the necessary information for your visit.
Elements is a multidisciplinary artistic project that connects art with nature. It consists of intimate concerts, performances, artist residencies and workshops. It is part of Easy Day, a nature-based learning centre, retreat venue and cultural project, founded in 2001 and established since 2016 at the Masía Pont Valentí, Alta Garrotxa, Girona, Catalunya.
Elements waters wonderful qualities in our consciousness through intimate concerts, the gathering of kind people, good food and it’s setting in the heart of the Sant Aniol Nature Reserve: Let the power and beauty of its mountains and rivers do their magic.
Another intention is to decentralise art from the cities, to generate artistic proposals in mountains and alternative places, that enlighten, question and inspire people, creating an exchange of knowledge and experience across boundaries.
This project exists for creative encounters that enrich our world by connecting artists, educators and cultures. It generates and explores new ways of learning, and invites us to be open, respectful and welcoming.
We look forward to seeing you here,
Luciano, Anna & Korbi
