Established in 2013, Riba Rocks is a not-for-profit registered association. Riba Rocks is based in an off-grid olive farm we call ‘The Valley’. We are situated close to the beautiful village of Riba-roja d’Ebre in Catalunya, Spain.
Our activities include artistic residencies and workshops. The first is ‘La Vall’ based in The Valley, where we create land art, temporary installations and performances. The second is ‘Riu d’art’ and is based in the village of Riba-roja d’Ebre. Visiting artists create large scale murals, ceramic installations and sculptures.
Riba Rocks also hosts workaways in The Valley for volunteer projects, including dry stone walling and olive harvesting. We also host students from across Europe on placements through our partner organisations. The placements include illustration, traditional skills workshops and land art.
Our music and art festival invites solo artists and bands and DJs from all over the world. They perform in the natural ampitheatre of The Valley across a weekend. Our pop-up artisan events include ‘Mercat d’Artesans’. This showcases local products including our Riba Rocks Olive Oil, as well as live music and workshops.
The Riba Rocks weekend festival won ‘Best Festival for Contribution to Sustainability’ at the Iberian Festival Awards. The award recognises the event’s focus on creating an ecologically, socially, culturally and economically sustainable event. Click here to read more.
With Art, Music and Ecology at the heart of the association, our projects emphasise local, small-scale, sustainable economy. Highlighting local producers including honey, wood-turning and the local bakery.
