This is what the 1st Edition of the ACNUR Loco Festival was like

On 17 April 2018, we launched the first edition of the ACNUR Loco Festival, a project that was created with the aim of empowering the younger generation, and showing them that they are able to change the world. Nearly 30 centres from all over Spain joined the initiative, helping us prove that being indifferent isn’t the norm – being crazy is! Thanks to everyone who helped pave the way!

Large and small centres, rural and city schools, boys and girls in primary school, teenagers doing their baccalaureate, fathers, mothers, neighbours and friends... Fun, endearing and downright crazy scenes like these were created thanks to the energy and passion brought by committed teachers, the endless creativity of the students, and the inexhaustible dedication of their families.

  • Spring was welcomed with a huge charity event at the 8 centres in the Gredos San Diego network, and the whole community got involved.
  • Students from ES Illa de Ons marched all across Bueu (Pontevedra), drums in hand, to make sure the whole town new the formidable Loco Festival was coming.
  • At CRA Las Cañadas, in Aguilafuente (Segovia), this photo booth was a precursor to an event packed full of surprises.
  • From Ceuta, the boys and girls from Santa Micaela showed us people of all ages can work together when they are united by a common cause.
  • At the Mare de Déu de Núria school in Barcelona and the IES Almussafes in Valencia, art and sculpture became a powerful tool to build awareness.
  • In Potries, the whole town had ACNUR burgers in support of the initiative and the ingenuity of its “crazy little folk”.
  • And the melon tribunal of the CEIP 12 de Octubre in Badajoz had prizes and smiles for everyone passing through on the day.
  • To round everything off, on 22 June, as part of the celebrations to mark World Refugee Day, we held a huge final event in Madrid’s Palacio de Cristal, with appearances from Clowns Without Borders, Barei, Ana Mena, Laura Durand and Atacados.
