Thank you for coming to our #RedLightParty!
We are very happy to have hosted up to 450 attendees who came to Ocaña -dressed with something red- to network, to have fun and to toast for freedom, it wouldn’t have been the same without all of you and you know it!
For those interested about the story of the venue, Ocaña café restaurant, has been named in honor of José Pérez Ocaña (1947-1983), who achieved in the 70s that Las Ramblas and Plaça Reial of Barcelona were an oasis of freedom. A painter, actor, night owl, artist, gay activist -for what he was imprisoned-, lover of popular festivities, transgressor and transvestite, Ocaña is still alive in the memory of the Catalan capital that still yearns that era in which, after years of tradition, puritanism and rectitude, so many roads opened up. Roads of change, democracy and freedom. The identity of today’s Barcelona, a lively and cosmopolitan open-minded city that rethinks, struggles and dares to do things, wouldn’t exist without the movement led by Ocaña in the 70s.
As you know, Lamp has always been and will continue being besides the figure of the Lighting Designer, and betting for the culture of light. That’s why, in this occasion, we counted with the collaboration of Gisela and María Asia from The Light Squad Studio for the lighting installation of the venue. Hope you liked it as much as we did!
Last but not least, thank you to IALD for giving Lamp and Carla Kissler Events the opportunity of organizing and sponsoring such a memorable party!
See you soon? Who knows ;)
