The artistic call ‘Galerías’ is open to intervene the cells of La Cárcel_Segovia Centro de Creación (The Prison_Segovia Creative Centre) (closing July 3rd)

For the fourth year in a row, the Segovia City Council opens the call for the competition Galerías (Galleries), aiming to create artistic interventions in the cells of La Cárcel_Segovia Centro de Creación. This project tries to foster creativity, not only of artistic disciplines, but also of themes and techniques.

This call is open to artists of all ages and nationalities that want to intervene in a space so intriguing as a cell from the old province prison of Segovia or other spaces of the left wing, like the corridor, the stairs that communicate the ground and first floor or the stained glass window at the end of the corridor.

A jury formed by dignitaries belonging to the world of culture will choose up to 25 projects among all the presented ones.

This year a new category for Segovians younger than 35 has been added to the competition with the aim of promoting their work. Out of the 25 selected projects, 10 will correspond to this category. The rest will belong to Segovian artists older than 35 or other artists from outside Segovia, regardless of their age.

The projects can be presented by July 3rd 2016. In the first fortnight of July, after the jury’s deliberation, the verdict will be announced. The 25 chosen artists will have the opportunity to display their work from September 9 for one month in La Cárcel_Segovia Centro de Creación, and they will be rewarded with 600€. Additionally, if the artist requires the purchase or rent of materials for the creation of their project, the Segovia City Council will assume responsibility for those financial matters.

If any creator wants to get familiar with the installations where the exhibition will take place, the City Council has organised a visit on March 3rd from 12 to 13pm and also from 17:30 to 18:30pm. To confirm assistance, please call 921-46-67-52 or write an e-mail to
