Through the energy of the Sun, our star, water flows in the three states in a cycle, transforming between our environment and living beings. The same cycle that allows the garden to live, flourish and host a space where art and knowledge dialogue to enhance its heritage. This year, in 2024, Aigua reflects on the relationship between water and art. Dance, documentaries, performances, dialogues, painting and workshops will accompany us in a new cycle of activities where the exchange between culture and water will blossom our soul.
