Arts and the British Council in Spain

The Spain Arts team is based in Madrid and Barcelona where we develop relationships with cultural institutions and programmers. Our objective is to showcase the best of UK creativity as well as promoting our own projects and collaborating in other innovative, high-quality arts events.

In all areas of our work we aim to paint a modern, diverse picture of contemporary Britain, and to promote the debate of issues and ideas by challenging fixed opinions and increasing understanding between cultures.

We work closely with the British Council’s Arts Departments in our head offices in London, as well as with our multi-disciplinary arts specialists in Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast. In addition, we collaborate with in-house experts in education, science and other disciplines.
