948 Merkatua, Arts Market of Navarra and Professional Forum is a programme of the Government of Navarra, promoted from the Cultural Action area of the Department of Culture. It comprises two programmes, 948 ART and 948 PRO, both directed at a heterogeneous profile and for different responsibilities in the area of culture and art.
For the 2019 edition, 948 Merkatua enhances its position as a meeting space for artists and cultural professionals, with the focus on interdisciplinarity. Although it has always been noted for the presence of diverse artistic disciplines, for this edition it is focussing on creation with a clearly interdisciplinary content.
