Room to Bloom Festival

From 1 to 4 November, Room to Bloom Festival took place in Malmö, Sweden on the theme: Celebrating Postcolonial and Ecofeminist Art & Activism.

Following the artists gatherings organised by Room to Bloom programme in Athens, Palermo, Kyiv and online, our community members (old and new) showcased their art work. What we lived during these days was like a collective momentum of solidarity, healing and celebration of artistic practices fighting promoting an alternative decolonial and ecofeminist narrative of Europe and the world. Nearly 50 artists from Europe, Latin America and MENA region took part in the Festival.  

Our programme included: workshops, performances, screenings and artists talks. Our artistic food designers performed for the first time a decolonial and ecofeminist meal. 

Many thanks to our host and patient partner, STPLN. 

The Festival was open to the public free of charge.
