Madrid Destino in co-production with Banco Santander Foundation, is promoting an open call for a British creator to join the project entitled Levadura. Programme of residencies for creators in schools.

This call is published for the 2016/2017 school year, and it is aimed to a British artist who is interested in developing a project with municipal primary school students and their teachers.   Aim of the call for applications This call for applications seeks a British artist to undertake a residency in Madrid and be part of a contemporary creative arts and/or research project in partnership with Matadero Madrid, and with one or several state-funded and charter schools in the Madrid municipal area, to be selected by public competition.   The aim of Levadura. A programme of residencies for creators in schools that takes place in Matadero Madrid is to introduce concepts and methodologies of Contemporary Art into the educational curriculum of primary school students; putting them in direct contact with artists and researchers who are working today.   We are looking for innovative projects that understand that children can play an active role in their own education. We will not accept projects in which pupils only carry out manual work or that involve reinterpreting great works in the History of Art. Projects should demonstrate the processes behind contemporary creation and empower pupils and their teachers as cultural creators/producers instead of giving them the role of passive spectator.

All documentation must be received by midnight (Madrid local time) on the deadline of 30 September 2016.
