I SRAW (International Sonic Reuse ArtWorkShop) is an international collective of artists directed by Rocco Papia made up in 2020 to research and develop Creative Reuse Artworks.
The Creative Reuse Artworks (C.R.A.) represent a novel approach to creating works of art by using urban and industrial waste and promoting ecological and sustainable development.
C.R.A. offer a unique vision of sustainability and creativity and aims to encourage innovative and creative processes that focus on repurposing industrial and urban waste, making use of digital technologies, music, and sculpture.
By creating C.R.A. artworks, artists contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly society, while also creating inspiring and thought-provoking works of art that challenge our understanding of what can be considered “waste.”
The methodology of the collective is developed in artistic residencies in which artists, researchers and creative people can develop the design of works starting from the materials and the place/territory hosting them.
