PUERTAS DE CASTILLA
Puertas de Castilla is a centre that focused mainly on culture, arts and innovation; whose model of cultural project is especially centered on cultural manifestations that are non-conventional, contemporary and outside of the commercial circuit. Initiated in May 2003, this cultural centre supports the latest trends – both social and urban – the fusion of disciplines and new artistic languages, as well as other current, necessary aspects of culture and thought in our society. By means of their different projects, such as the Audio Library of Experimental Music and Sound Art (SONM), the International Film Festival (IBAFF), Urban environment sphere, MIAS – Latina, World Dance Alliance Europe…, Puertas de Castilla motivates four mains axis of action: training, creation, production and diffusion. In this framework of its actions, Puertas de Castilla expects, not only supporting the artists, but also directing their creations towards the final recipient of cultural policies, i.e. to the citizen. In general, its program focuses on reaffirming the decentralised and decentralising tendency of the new artistic and cultural events, and establishing a cooperation program among cultural associations, artists and international institutions that are regulated by the same parameter: local thinking and global acting.
