FLORA International Flower Festival will celebrate its first edition between 20 and October 29, 2017.
In FLORA, 8 international floral artists will have the opportunity to transform the patios of the festival into 8 fascinating spaces located in representative buildings of Cordoba, institutional courtyards ceded by the City that will establish a wonderful journey through memory, art, culture and the Heritage. These ephemeral floral facilities can be visited free of charge only from 20 to 29 October.
The artists will reinterpret the courtyards of Córdoba from different points of view, cultural factors and contexts, offering an unprecedented look at our heritage. FLORA International Festival of Flowers thus proposes an unprecedented cultural exchange between a space as traditional as the courtyards of Cordoba and an art as contemporary and surprising as the one of the floral installations, a kind dialogue between tradition and innovation called to become an appointment of the Spanish cultural agenda.
Our festival wants to recognize the work of the best floral artists in the world, an artistic universe still unknown by many and that until now lacked a prize of international relevance.
Three great prizes, chosen by an international jury and endowed with 60,000, 40,000 and 20,000 euros respectively, will place on the international map this festival that takes place in a city with a relationship as close to the world of flowers as Cordoba.
