LOCATIONS

The Congress has the help and collaboration of three cultural spaces of the city of Granada hosting the various activities.

Teatro Alhambra

The Alhambra Theatre in Granada is part of the Andalusian Regional Government's network of theatres and is managed by the Regional Ministry of Culture. Located in the historic center of the city, in the neighborhood of Realejo, it has a privileged situation.

In its programming we find theatre, dance, concerts...It was inaugurated in 1992, replacing a cinema that, in its best moments, in the middle of the 70's, programmed the so-called "art and rehearsal" films. It was the determination and tenacity of a private company, Teatro del Sur, that saved this space from a dangerous decline at the end of the 1980s, facing the reforms that would turn the old cinema into a new theatre. In less than four years of programming, its commitment was consolidated with the 1996 Andalusia Theatre Prize, awarded by the Regional Government of Andalusia, which the following year assumed its reform and subsequent management.

Contemporaneity, in theatre, dance and music, has been and still is the hallmark of this hall, which in 2005 underwent a major remodelling. Since the end of 2007, with excellent occupancy rates, it has once again brought together the people of Granada who remain loyal to its presence, with a programme that is a benchmark for modernity, the crossing of cultures, frontier art, and with decisive support for the professional companies of Granada and Andalusia.

Also worthy of note is its program for schools that brings together thousands of participants.

Centro Federico García Lorca

The Federico García Lorca Centre aspires to become a reference point for contemporary culture, taking responsibility for the conservation and diffusion of the Federico García Lorca Foundation's collections and incorporating artistic manifestations from the international panorama as well as the development of a wide range of pedagogical work with children and young people in their relationship with the various arts.

It will be a place where art, culture and thought are generated, always active and in contact with citizens. A place open to public participation, to support and promote artists of all disciplines and with an elaborate educational programme aimed at all audiences. But, above all, it is proposed as a cultural institution that will give primary importance to the word. The word in all its forms: written, spoken, represented or sung.

The activities of the Federico García Lorca Centre are based on the values of the search for excellence and the defence of freedom and fraternity that embody the figure and legacy of Federico García Lorca.

The Federico García Lorca Centre will structure its action in three areas of activities, aspiring to become a reference in contemporary culture.

ESPACIO CALLE

The Plaza de las Pasiegas is an urban space in the city of Granada, autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. Located in the old part of the city, approximately to the west of the Cathedral and in front of its main façade. With an approximate surface of 1000 m², distributed in two levels and some stairs of separation in front of the facade of the Cathedral. In the Plaza de las Pasiegas the two sections of Calle Colegio Catalino, Plaza de Alonso Cano, and Calle Pie de la Torre and Calle Marqués de Gerona come together.

 It was originally known as Plaza de las Flores, alluding to the flower market established in that public space, which still persists in the nearby Plaza de Bib-Rambla. In 1807 its name changed to the current Plaza de las Pasiegas, because -according to Gallego Burín- several women from the region of El Pas, in Cantabria, had fabric shops there. Other authors suggest that the name is due to the existence of a brotherhood of Asturians in the nearby and disappeared church of La Magdalena or, probably, to the presence in the square of Pasian breeders who gave suckling to foundlings or were hired by families from the bourgeoisie of Granada to breastfeed their children.
