Fun Fan FestGuest project to ArtsLibris
Fun Fan Fest is a festival, research platform and observatory of projects focused on local and international creative and collective groups that are linked to independent publishing through sound and image. Its way of working, based on the culture of proximity, prioritizes new creation based on the multidisciplinary and the coexistence of contexts; that seeks enrichment and local knowledge to build bridges globally. Fun Fan Fest is a project produced by Ana Manaia and Irma Marco from the TOOL_Eines per la Cultura platform. The presence of Fun Fan Fest as a guest project in ArtsLibris will take the form of a gathering of collectives and artists linked to independent edition through the exhibition of published material, art installations and works in progress, among others.

Constructing a sound-book object
The aim is to create a book-object with a “snaking” illustrated text which also emits sound, by means of little wooden boxes, wire and rubber amongst other materials, and which of course has our own personal touch.
Dates and times: Friday April 21, 5 pm and Saturday April 22, noon
Duration: 1.30 h
"Group A looks at what is behind the corner book stand, the one who laughs and laughs in a strange way, the boy who is bored ... They describe it by broadcasting it live to the B team upstairs, they write, Draw and scribble. "
By allocating roles out to a very special working team we will put together a book in situ using walkie talkies and mobile phones.
Dates and times: Sunday April 23, 13.00 h
