Jordi Fosas Colomer

Born in Olot, Catalonia, Jordi has a long track record in traditional and popular culture. Since 2019, he has been the Artistic Director of Fira Mediterrània de Manresa, the strategic fair for artistic proposals which use root sources, tradition and popular culture as the drivers of creativity. It’s the multidisciplinary Fira, where three great itineraries are proposed – one of music, one of performing arts, including dance, theatre, circus, street arts and proposals for families, and one of popular culture and associationism, placing emphasis on their relationship with the professional arts sector while taking into account the Mediterranean’s intangible heritage. This approach shows the traditional roots as the creative force, roots with multi-faceted outlooks that speak to us in the present tense. At the same time, the professional area is a meeting and exchange space that becomes a point of contact and sale for both the performing arts and music sectors. The 23rd edition will be held in Manresa from 15 to 18 October 2020.
