Insultarte (play on words in Spanish with ‘insult’ and ‘art,’ and literally meaning ‘to insult you’) is a comprehensive activities program aimed at students and workers from the field of culture and creation. The program includes a workshop, a lecture series and a round table that will provide participants with the tools and keys necessary to take advantage of the employment opportunities available in their sector, to understand the legal framework of their job sector and to seek funding for their projects.

Based on case studies, the workshop offers participants advice on how to develop their projects, providing keys and guidelines for approaching their work from the legal point of view, for budgeting and seeking protection against possible plagiarism or theft.

Uncertainty in the Cultural Sector. 26 March. 6:00 - 7:00 pm
Round table moderated by Iñaki López with the participation of the Group Insultarte (Juan Lesta, Iñaki López and Vanesa Castro), Moisés Álvarez and Marcos Nine.
The cultural sector is not only made up of its industries; it also consists of agents (creators, researchers, agitators, prosumers, etc.) that do not have a defined legal framework and who, from our experience, constitute a large majority. But, what are the labour conditions of these culture workers? How do they manage to live off their work? This round table will share some positive experiences.
