Konvent is a late XIX century nun’s convent and textile
colony that has been converted into a multidisciplinary arts centre. It’s a
space for art and way of understanding and undertaking cultural practices that
are rooted in the territory. Our main objective is cultural mediation via
artistic creation and dissemination, to dignify the environment, a unique and
mutating landscape where content and container often don’t match.
essence of the project is freedom, which implies renouncing many of the
requirements of most oficial bodies. The Konvent is self-managed, it has its
own centripetal and centrifugal forces, a unique idiosyncrasy that has become a
reference model. The scale of our work is glocal with an approach that unites
diverse disciplines to become a catalyst for culture.
Our starting point is that of resilience, we don’t
entertain pre-established requisites nor limitations with regards to artistic
production. We offer what we have: a unique space with facilities for all types
of activities, both individual or collective, in addition to shared spaces
which promote exchange and social interaction. In return we search for
proposals that provide a fresh gaze in cultural creation. We’re open to
projects that enrich the artistic discourse, we like unfinished ideas,
unimaginable adventures and an irreverent complicity with spectators.
