What we do

Our official cultural program brings every year to the American public a combination of acclaimed and emerging authors, artists and performers from Spain, so they can showcase or even premiere in the U.S. Audiences are invited to explore the many facets and dimensions of Spain’s cultural heritage and of its vibrant creativity today.

We support the presence and participation of Spanish professionals from the cultural sphere in a wide array of cultural festivals across the U.S. territory, focusing on the young and talented. Numerous concerts, exhibitions, lectures and performances take place every year at prestigious American cultural institutions at our Cervantes Institutes in Chicago, NY and Albuquerque, as well as at our SPAIN arts & culture headquarters in Washington, D.C and at Centro Cultural Español in Miami.

How we do it

We partner with American institutions to build institutional alliances and long-lasting transnational bridges through the arts in a broad sense. Our multidisciplinary approach covers a wide range of fields from design, to urban culture, culinary arts, music, cinema, literature, visual arts and performing arts.

Our cultural events and projects are curated under specific based on innovation and quality. SPAIN arts & culture integrates 360 degree communication. Our brand is our identity and it is visible through our semester catalogs, website and social media. A dynamic professional platform named SPAINred helps us discover and promote the best Spanish creative work in the U.S. and share their ideas with American institutions as a way to open up professional opportunities for them.
