Care recipients at island's day centre lend hand preparing for Que Celeste festival

foto-cdd-que-celeste-3Islanders at Formentera's dependent care facility, or centre de dia, are teaming up this week with members of environmental group Que Celeste to repurpose some of the found objects that surfaced during the group's coastal cleanups at ses Illetes, es Carnatge and es Ram.

The idea is to give a new, decorative use to various objects through a kind of “artistic recycling” aimed at fostering creativity and personal autonomy among individuals at the day centre.

Participants are rebranding discarded plastic bottles as jellyfish which will function as decorative lights at the upcoming Que Celeste festival. Organisers of the festival, which is scheduled to take over Sant Ferran's church-front plaza September 21 and 22, say the event is about educating islanders and tourists about the importance of preserving and caring for the environment.
