THE HUG [platform for cultural cooperation] is a cultural association non-profit, whose purpose is the creation of networks of cultural cooperation at European and international level, in the fields of art, architecture and design. THE HUG was born thanks to the Gilfer’s initiative, with the support of Rafael Agudo, Klaara Nieminen, Mari Nieves Vergara, Julia San Millán and Toni Ledentsa, producers and cultural managers. Its main commitment is with the culture, highlighting the networking, co-production and research. The main objective of THE HUG is the immersion of artists, managers and Commissioners, in an area of cooperation, therefore creating new work, artistic and personal experiences. THE HUG is intended to be a platform of union between Spain and other countries, to, be able to create new ways of cooperation, management, creation and cultural innovation.
THE HUG was founded to promote cultural and relations of cooperation between Spain and different countries, with the aim of creating collaborative networks. This will be achieved thanks to the involvement of institutions, associations, platforms and collective cultural and social, public and private. Thus, the goal is the establishment of professional, participatory, transparent and stable structures within the cultural sector. With these new structures are to promote contemporary cultural practices that encourage creation, research, education, editing and production in the fields of Visual Arts, architecture and design.
