When BrightMed began to explore ‘Chaos’ as a theme, countries around us have demonstrated unexpected and chaotic behaviour such us, Brexit, Les gilets jaunes (Yellow jackets), terrorist attacks, the rise of right-wing political parties and the escalation of immigration concerns. Not to mention our personal issues such as accidents, loss of loved ones, etc.
If BrightMed can impact the Universe in such a way, then why not put a positive spin on it. Therefore, ‘Out of Chaos’ is our theme for 2019.
From the 11th to the 13th of June BrightMed will offer a programme of films, talks, conferences, exhibitions, plus a street party and the annual concert inviting artists and inspirational speakers, who will offer solutions and innovations in order to steer us through our chaotic lives.
The renowned World Music artist from the Balkans: Goran Bregović (along with 20 other performers from Serbia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, etc) and performing his deep and spiritual music: Diwan Saz (from Israel, Palestine, Iran, Turkey and Syria) will star in the concerts.
Influential speakers will explore how to Manage Chaos to the business community and students.
A great and chaotic street party will take place in The Piazza and Irish Town.
The Film Festival at Leisure Cinemas will explore its vision of ‘Chaos’ as well as an Art Exhibition at 92 Irish Town.
This year we are launching BrightMed Environment which concentrates on Eco Friendly iniciatives. As such we will be inviting NGOs to present their ideas and products. All products used during the Festival will be Environment Friendly ie no plastic cups, bottles, etc.
The BrightMed Festival would not exist without our sponsors. The Ministry of Culture, the Kusuma Trust, Hyperion, EMID Gibraltar, BIH amongst others who are supporting the series of events, understanding the necessity to reflect Chaos, to celebrate and develop new ways to address our chaotic world within Business, Art and Education.
BrightMed maintains a vision of Bridging Souls and Lands. This is achieved, thanks to our team and now with new energetic interests from other countries such as UK. Our ambition is to expand worldwide, using our Gibraltarian values of ‘Convivencia’ as a model within the region around us (Spain, Portugal, Morocco) and beyond.
Concert tickets will be available from 92 Irish Town and from Sacarello’s Coffee Shop & Restaurant at £40 (General Public) and £35 (Senior Citizens and Students) and at www.buytickets.gi.
