SWATCH CREATIVE NATIVES: the festival of young creators & new ideas in Madrid

October 22-27th 2018

Organised into five creative teams, the creative natives and coaches develop their art shows: experiences and interventions created together with an interdisciplinary perspective. These final projects will constitute the main content of the Swatch Cities Madrid Festival, which will take place on October 22-27, 2018 in Madrid. In addition to their learning experiences throughout the creative process, the 15 creative natives have also received a training scholarship, production support, a platform to present their work, a broadcasting strategy for their practice, and a connection with the creative community.
