Call for 948 Merkatua projects opens until 3rd August 2019
948 Merkatua, Navarra Arts Market and Professional Forum, gathers together in Pamplona, for a three day event, an extremely varied range of interdisciplinary professionals.
This third edition of 948 Merkatua focusses on creation and interdisciplinary content, on the understanding that, with regard to the cultural production of our times, interdisciplinary dialogue leads to some highly interesting creative and cultural innovations.
A maximum of 20 projects will be selected
From the projects selected, 10 will be chosen for public presentation on the 22nd November in Baluarte
Advice. The 20 projects selected will enter a round of short interviews by a panel of cultural management professionals appointed by the organisation. These professionals can be consulted about aspects relating to project implementation and they will provide information, give opinions, suggestions and contacts.
Public presentation. Of the 20 projects selection, up to 10 of the most innovative projects will be chosen, with the greatest potential for a public presentation within 948 PRO, open to all professionals registered at 948 Merkatua. The presentation is set to take place on Friday 22nd in the Chamber Hall at Baluarte. Each presentation will have a total duration of 10 minutes: 5 minutes to present the project and a 5 minute dialogue with the public. The presentations will be supported by the projection of 10 images.
The presentation is set to take place on Friday 22nd November 2019 in the Chamber Hall at Baluarte
Financial grants. The panel of professionals will select 3 winners from the 10 projects chosen for the public presentation, who will each be given a financial grant of 1,500€ based on the following categories:
The amounts granted will be subject to any legally required tax withholdings.
Networking. The 20 participants selected will get free registration for two persons for 948 Merkatua, with the possibility of taking part in all the activities and taking advantage of the networking opportunity with the professionals attending.
Registration may be made in either Spanish, Basque, French or English. Presentation will be made in Spanish or Basque. Depending on the nature of the projects, the possibility of making a presentation in French or English will be considered.
Once the applications received have been assessed to ensure compliance with requirements, the organisation will select those proposals that it considers to be justifiably more interdisciplinary, innovative, viable and of the greatest interest. For this purpose, it will gather a group of specialists who will individually value each of the projects.
The organisation may contact the pre-selected project representatives in order to complete the information and clarify any doubts, before deciding on the final selection.
Likewise, the organisation will offer the 10 presenters the possibility of support from a specialist in order to optimise the content and form of their public presentation at 948 PRO.

The panel of judges will value the information received and that provided during the public presentation, in general terms: the interdisciplinary nature, the quality of the content and the level of viability; and specifically, for each category, the economic impact, the social impact and the degree of innovation.
