ZAWP stands for Zorrotzaurre Art Work in Progress, a movement that was created by the Asociación Cultural Haceria Arteak in 2008 in Bilbao (Basque Country).
This movement was originally created in the framework of the urban development plan for the neighborhoods of Ribera de Deusto and Zorrotzaurre in Bilbao. As for other former industrial spaces, the Asociación Cultural Haceria Arteak was responsible for transforming this peninsula into a cultural and creative site in order to revitalise the area. The objective was also to encourage people to see what the area has to offer.
ZAWP is now a consolidated movement of many people who work in urban revitalisation through creation, intervention and memory enhancement as a driving force for other initiatives.
ZAWP has been recognised by the Provincial Council of Briscay as a "Priority Activity" (2016-2018), won the Second Prize of the "Creative Spain Cup" (2017) and was one of the six finalists of "Projects that Change the World" of Triodos Bank among more than 2,000 initiatives (2016).
