"The best-prepared cities will enjoy the most opportunities in the future.
The Creative City International Fair puts Madrid at the centre of knowledge solutions
for smart cities, with the celebration of this global event."
The Creative City International Fair Cibeles 2013/14 presents new social structures, artists and companies that are resisting the hypercartography of new communication and control agents; they attempt to break free from old capitalism, corporate, state nation and brand models, by creating networks of mutual dependence, solidarity, the defense of shared ideals, e.g. the environment, sustainable development, democracy; by giving priority to individuals, and promoting social equality; by offering sensitive and subjective alternatives in the face of the prevailing monitoring system and exchange models.
One of the main characteristics of the Fair is the support it provides to productive social sectors, professionals, artists, collectives and entrepreneurs. Because of this, in order to face the challenges of
globalization and prepare for the demands of the market, it combines organizational experience, innovation, technological development and competitiveness.
The Fair is the fruit of the collaboration of more than 15 companies and institutions from all over the world, with the institutional support of the Madrid City Government.
