Matadero Madrid center for contemporary creation


Start date
End date
Goethe-Institut Madrid in co-production with Madrid’s City Council and Fundación Banco Santander, is organising an open call seeking one German artist who shall develop a project in collaboration with students and teachers from municipal schools in the city of Madrid as part of the third edition of the Levadura artist-educator residency project. 

The aim of Levadura. A programme of residencies for creative artists-educators is to carry out a pilot programme to introduce digital culture concepts and methodologies with a particular focus on citizen participation 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 5 September 2016.
