Who is behind SpainRED

Behind SPAINred is The Spain-USA Foundation (www.spainculture.us), a local, non-profit organization 501 (c)(3). Its aim is to promote Spanish arts and culture in the United States while at the same time building bridges between the two nations. Through its partnership with the Cultural Office at the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C., the Foundation has brought dozens of Spanish artists, architects, designers, music bands and exhibitions to the US. In its honorary steering committee, the Foundation includes personalities such as actor Antonio Banderas, famous chef José Andrés, and award-winning architect Santiago Calatrava. The Foundation is constantly looking for partners to promote Spanish culture in the US.

The Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in collaboration with the Consulates of Spain and Cervantes Institutes launched in February 2011 the new brand for the promotion of Spanish culture in the U.S.: SPAIN arts & culture.

SPAIN arts & culture features the most cutting-edge works of international renowned Spanish artists in fields such as design, urban culture, architecture, visual arts, film, performing arts, literature and music. A series of exhibitions, conferences, showcases, and performances take place every year at the most prestigious American cultural institutions bringing a taste of all the creativity, history, and talent of Spanish artists to the American public.

This program is organized by the Embassy of Spain's Cultural Office in Washington, D.C. and its network of General Consulates and Cervantes Institutes in the United States together with the Spain-USA Foundation. The Spanish-American cultural cooperation aims to create multiple links between the creative sectors of both countries and promote modern Spain's fertile spectrum of contemporary artistic expression.
