Madrid has turned into a huge Swiss cheese. Thousands of rooms and buildings are standing vacant, even in the city center. At the same time, many local groups are desperately searching for affordable spaces to create added cultural, social and political value for the city. Therefore, the We-Traders Open Call Madrid asks: How can we gain access to and make use of Madrid’s vacant spaces?
Anyone can get involved and be a We-Trader! The community will vote on the winning contribution. The chosen concept will be presented at the We-Traders exhibition in the Matadero in Madrid and the winner will travel to the exhibition in Turin in May 2014. Visit the We-Traders Open Call Madrid here.
