Creativity arts grants programme 2008

CUE is a space for spontaneous expression and interdisciplinary improvisation; a space for creation and exhibition open to participation by all without the filter of a curator, where all forms of artistic expression and practices are welcome. This space will be open the first Friday of each month at the Intermediæ buildings.

CUE has a space equipped with technical media available to participants (400 m2, amplification, video projectors, video cameras, audio channels, DVD players and a few other surprises). Participants are invited to bring what they choose: musical instruments, cameras, recorders, brushes, costumes, objects, etc.

The hanging garden is given back to the neighbourhood
Sunday 28 September from 12.00 to 2.00 p.m.

In June, Lisa Cheung took her mobile gardening workshop through the streets and squares of Legazpi and, with the help of local residents, planted over fifty plants that have made up part of the Avant-Garden hanging garden. With the arrival of autumn, Lisa is returning the garden to the local residents who helped her to build it. On September 28, you can choose the plant you would like to have in your “garden”, and you will receive explanations on how to care for your plant. In addition, Lisa has chosen some very special seeds that she will give to anyone who wants to test their green thumb.

Forecasts predict that Madrid will use up its buildable land by 2015. The city has definite limits. What new growth mechanisms will come into use once the city can no longer expand horizontally? We intend to work on the inexistence of new urban land, generating tools enabling the growth of the city from its centre, through a new redistribution of densification uses and operations.
