Converse comes with new edition of CONS Project x sivasdescalzo, a global project designed to inspire new generations of creative spirits through the relationship between art and music: The success in cities such as Los Angeles, Lisbon and London has brought it to Barcelona with Dj Alizzz and designer Arnau Pi, the project’s ambassadors, who have the strong challenge of fostering creativity among the participants.

The project consists in bringing underground and avant-guard art and music closer to young people interested in art. The youngest community of electronic musicians from Barcelona will have the opportunity to learn the techniques of Dj Alizzz in an exclusive workshop to take place on July 12 at the Convent dels Angels Barcelona during the day. Only a dozen young producers will be working during the day alongside aLiZzZ on a personal remix. After the workshop, there will be an event to discover the current electronic music scene?the one good2b likes?how the limited edition vinyl created during the day are edited. It will include aLiZzZ remixes of In Chains and WHOA and artwork specially created for the occasion by designer and illustrator Arnau Pi.

The limited edition vinyl will be available as from 15th July exclusively on sivasdescalzo, an icon of sneaker culture in Spain, with the purchase of a model of the renewed collection Converse CONS Weapon. This is a celebration in tribute to an iconic model, the CONS Weapon, a sneaker that revolutionized urban style and that now comes back with an improved design and better materials.
