AU Gust Festival
Art & Agriculture Festival
The 6th edition of the Au Gust Festival focuses on our fruits. Methodologically, ‘Fruits’ is a harvesting process. In a broader sense, fruit reflects human development and the importance of harvesting the benefits of our actions in society.
“Harvesting” is like a choreography of nature, in which different actions repeat in a continuous cycle. Choosing the right time to harvest is essential. If we harvest too early, the fruit will be green; if we wait too long, it will be spoilt. In addition to the harvesting aspect, the concept of “Harvesting” implies harmonious collaboration, sharing and concern for all members of the community. In this issue we open a discussion about the harvesting process in society, caught between tradition and evolution. We will build new models of sustainability and collective sharing practices.
