Information about the festival

The Lost Festivals (originally named Festival de Arte Fuerteventura and Festival de Arte Lanzarote) are the new format for the 2020 events organised by Lacuna Festivals. The Lost Festivals take place online from 26th June – 31st July 2020. 

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic it is simply not safe or possible to hold large-scale events of any nature this summer. People are confined to their houses or in extreme self isolation; shops, bars, cinemas, gyms and restaurants are closed; places of worship have shut their doors; travel is severely restricted or impossible and many important events have been postponed or cancelled. However, we feel that it is super important in these unprecedented times to keep the creative vibe going, support artists to stay connected to their creativity/making and keep artists talking to and sharing with each other. As such, we have transformed the original format and created fully digital festivals to replace the physical events that have been cancelled.

Just like a physical festival, The Lost Festivals have many different galleries in a variety of different places. We have galleries of participatory projects on our Facebook page, artist profiles on our Instagram account, video works on our YouTube channel, a photostream on our Flickr page and our festival galleries showing artists from our original open call hosted by ArtSteps. Our galleries this year are showcasing work by 210 artists representing 53 countries – when we say international, we really do mean it!

In addition to the online galleries there are 45 online events that you can join in. Events include artist talks, workshops, live music and dance performances, videos and panel discussions. All of our events are being prepared, organised and delivered for free – with creatives from around the world giving their time and energy to share their art with you. Some artists may have a donation button/link for their event and we strongly encourage all audience members to donate if they can do so. You can find the event schedule and more information about the events here.
