Madrid Destino Cultura Turismo y Negocio S.A. (hereinafter, “MADRID DESTINO”) with CIF (tax ref.) A-84073105, entrusted by the Arts Department of Madrid City Council with the organisation, management, production and operation of cultural events at CentroCentro Cibeles, is keen to promote activities that get international creative artists involved in Madrid's cultural scene. In the context of the cordial relationship established between Great Britain and Spain and in the interests of gaining first-hand knowledge of Great Britain’s fascinating arts scene, Madrid Destino, in co-production with Banco Santander Foundation, is promoting an open call for a British creator-educator to join the project entitled Levadura. Programme of residencies for creators-educators.

1. Aim of the call for applications

This call for applications seeks a British creator-educator to undertake a residency in Madrid and be part of a contemporary creative arts project in partnership with CentroCentro Cibeles 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. Programme of residencies for creators-educators is to introduce contemporary art concepts and methods into the education curriculum followed by primary school pupils, using participative activities and bringing them into direct contact with practising contemporary creative artists.

We are looking for innovative projects that understand that children can play an active role in their own education. We will not look into 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 a passive spectator.
