948 Merkatua 2019

948 Merkatua, Arts Market and Professional Forum
20-22 November, Pamplona, Navarra
 

  • The latest edition of 948 Merkatua focuses on interdisciplinary creation, from the local to the global levels.  

  • 948 Merkatua is, above all, a space devised by the Government of Navarra to generate dialogue, exchanges and cultural and professional enrichment. It is an opportunity for networking, to extend one's knowledge, to meet people, connect with people you know and don’t know… Basically, an opportunity to generate culture, a better culture.  

  • By doing this, Navarra wishes to establish itself as one the national and international markets that is most clearly focused on artistic and cultural innovation. In the dynamic and changing world of arts and culture, 948 Merkatua sets out to become one of its main focal points.
  • This world of arts and culture is driven by creativity, a driver that is always active, which is why new propositions emerge all the time... innovative forms, original ideas. etc… 948 Merkatua takes a respectful look at that creativity and shows a selection of those innovations, with the focus placed on propositions from the Nouvelle Aquitaine-Euskadi-Navarra Euroregion, which has continued to provide support to the programme's effort since the beginning, and to its outreach.

  • 948 Merkatua also continues to strengthen affinities with nearby territories: The Basque Country, Nouvelle Aquitaine, La Rioja and Aragon, an area that is seen a natural framework for scope and expansion. There are many artists and professionals from these territories. 

  • The artistic programme (ART) has been put together by an artistic committee that has worked in a collegiate manner to bring together initiatives, look for a balance and dialogues, and devise contexts and proposals. The result is a programme of 32 high-quality artistic propositions of a markedly interdisciplinary nature. 

  • In the programmed artistic propositions, 948 Merkatua ART covers themes and concerns of society and puts them under the microscope of sector professionals and the general public. Gender equality, territorial and cultural balance and caring for the environment are, among many others, some of the themes the artists reflect in their work and seek to convey to the spectator, without neglecting the plastic or formal quality of their creations. 
  • While 948 Merkatua ART is an opportunity to become familiar with the most attractive and thought-provoking artistic creations from Navarra, it also serves to get closer to largely unknown national and international propositions.

  • This edition has simplified the model, reducing it to its essentials as a way of improving it: concentrating the exhibition spaces, focusing on the central role of the Baluarte auditorium and reducing the number of artistic propositions to be able to house and present them in a suitable manner.

  • All the programmed propositions are in easy-to-access formats and fit in to a programming context that is not necessarily found in large spaces or festivals. In this way, 948 Merkatua wishes to bring artistic creation closer to other cultural programming contexts.

  • With this in mind, the current edition of 948 Merkatua includes some new activities in the   
    • A window on creation in Navarra, a showcase for artistic projects that are well-equipped for dissemination beyond the region's borders.

    • Navarra networking ART, a meeting place for professionals from outside Navarra and local, cultural and artistic players.

    • Presentation of cultural projects, an open call at national level in the search for the best cultural projects that associate pairings such as culture and society, culture and innovation, and culture and sustainability.
