Welcome to Jelsa Art Biennial

The Jelsa Art Biennial on the island of Hvar is a festival of contemporary art that connects different audiences through a multitude of artistic media and practices. It is aimed at both established artists and emerging artists. The event is specific for works that are mostly performed in public spaces with the aim of bringing contemporary art closer to the widest possible audience, emphasizing art that conveys a message of social responsibility and sustainability. In this sense, JAB has a vision to become a unique and recognizable event of socially responsible art at the European level and a generator of development based on environmental awareness and culture.
