Naves Matadero – International Living Arts Centre aims to provide a space for contemporary creation and thinking –with a particular focus on new performing arts languages and transversality–, enabling it to operate as a catalyst between creators and citizens, a space where the performing arts, visual arts, literature, philosophy, film, music and transmedia activities are interconnected in an interdisciplinary programme.

From the outset, internationalisation has been one of Naves Matadero’s primary objectives. To this end it forges links between artists and institutions to enable the creation of international collaborative networks. On one hand, the programme is developed in collaboration with cultural institutes and embassies from various countries, and on the other, when international artists spend time in this municipal centre they always establish ties with the public and with local creators in meetings, workshops and collaborative artistic projects.
