Tetuán Landscape Project
From June to December 2013
Urban Landscape Department, Municipal District Council and local residents' representatives
The Tetuán Landscape Project aims to develop an experience that allows ways to be explored to improve the urban landscape in Madrid's Tetuán district
through artistic interventions. This initiative falls within the framework of Madrid City Council's Cultural Strategy Plan 2012-2015 (PECAM) and complies with the strategic lines aimed at promoting creativity, public participation and dissemination as regards enhancing the urban landscape.
The project thus encompasses two areas of work: the first focuses on artists and their interventions and the second on citizen participation and dissemination. This commissioned task is part of a "Cultural Programme for improvement of Urban Landscape Quality".
