ZAWP (Zorrotzaurre Art Work in Progress) is a movement created in 2008 to face the meanwhile of the urban plan approved for the districts of Ribera de Deusto and Zorrotzaurre. From the point of view of culture and creativity, we operate in circumstances of a neighbourhood in transit, working on the revitalisation of the place we inhabit, creation in its broader sense and the appreciation of our History. We represent an artistic, innovative and creative approach to the process of urban transformation.
We work on the economic and social regeneration of a degraded industrial area by generating opportunities based on culture, innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity. Within Zwap the activities are composed and distributed along these three lines:
Zorrozaurre free zone: Interface space on a future island in movement, so that the different artistic disciplines present in the Country have the opportunity to act and interact.
Rehabilitation of unused spaces: Reactivate unused industrial spaces of La Ribera making it possible to generate job opportunities and creative development within it.
Zawp lab: A space dedicated to intensive work laboratories that seek to focus on research and creative experimentation work based on transformation.
Participar en el cambio de paradigma de los procesos de transformación urbana desde lo micro a lo macro poniendo en valor el “mientras tanto” y los procesos necesarios para que se articule.
Art, creation, innovation, revitalisation, entrepreneurship.
