Yey! It’s olive harvest time again!
This year the weather has been very strange and we were warned that the oil yield would be poor due to a very long summer drought followed by some extremely heavy autumn rain and then a lack of sun to turn the water to oil in the fruit.
The 3rd edition of the Riu d’art residency is complete and we now boast 18 multimedia artworks installed in the village of Riba-roja d’Ebre. Works range from delicate illustrations to large scale murals, from graffiti ‘street art’ and contemporary installation art through to performance and sculpture. The artworks have been created by artists from all over the world including Riba-roja d’Ebre itself, Singapore, Austria and the United States.
Riba Rocks (registered association) was proud to present the official inauguration of the 2018 Riu d’art residency, which took place in Riba-roja d’Ebre on the 30th June 2018. The evening saw an official reception outside the Town Hall where the Riba Rocks Association and the Youth Councillor of the Ajuntament thanked all the artists involved and reiterated the aims and objectives of this residency.

This is fast becoming our favourite time of the year! Early November saw the arrival of our awesome group of workaway volunteers from Germany, Poland, South Korea, Scotland and the U.S to help with this year’s olive harvest. The trees were looking so full, we cracked on for 3 days and managed to collect 1000 kilos from only half the valley. The best year yet!
