3rd editiion AGENDA2030. TRANSPIRE, on the future challenges of today's youth

Nicolás Salmerón Cultural Centre
Friday 17th + Saturday 18th, November 2023

TRANSPIRE is conceived as a conference, as a conversation, as a reflection and action around the 2030 Agenda, its powers and its limits, from the perspective of youth and with the proactive force of culture.

Through talks, workshops, actions and artistic pieces, various groups of young people will share their experiences and positions regarding the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Culture, little taken into account in the Agenda, will function as the main vehicle to address issues ranging from peace to energy consumption, through inequalities, health, social welfare and, of course, sustainability.

Transpire is a space to “sweat” the Agenda, put it in motion, shake it up together and perceive contemporary challenges from artistic, activist, and poetic prisms, which allow us a greater agency over the world.

Transpire is a round table between young artists, cultural agents about emancipation at the age of 30,3 and other problematic that they go through. Transpire is a workshop of design and textile industry; it is a physical workshop to think ourselves on the internet and explore new technologies moving our bodies and it is a place to listen and imagine sounds that go through our identities. Transpire is also a day to celebrate ourselves in an intimate concert of raxet1, with cheerful and comfy sounds.

Nicolás Salmerón Cultural Centre once was a school. In its classrooms and halls there are still a lot of souvenirs of that past. In Transpire 2030 Agenda we want to talk and think about future challenges, but always starting from the present, from what today preoccupies young people. The past, past experiences, scholar or not, form the baggage with which we face what is yet to come.

This forum, designed in a participatory way, actively invites teenagers, young people and students to join the different activities. Also, we invite older cultural and social agents who are involved in processes of social transformation and who want to listen to other voices and contribute to these initiatives.

Free access until full capacity: round table and concert.
By registration: workshops.

CONCERT by raxet1

As the closing of the event, we propose to get together, get closer and enjoy ourselves with a concert of raxet1 for which we invite young people to get on the stage of the auditorium, let’s close the curtain behind and forget for a while what’s left and stay in the present moment.

Raxet1 (Madrid, 1996), has presented in his prolific career the works Mixtape1 (2017), Princesa Tetrabrick (2018), and Corazón de Orca (2019). Her songs include themes such as romanticism, worldly craving (sic Ray Heredia), memory as an insistent poison and multiple references of poets who have marked their understanding of the lyric and content: Fernando Pessoa, Wislawa Szymborska, Alejandra Pizarnik, Reiner María Rilke. She has played in multiple spaces of the underground circuit, in the Wurlitzer room (2019), in the Vesta room (2020), in the Cultural Center of Spain in Mexico, in La Nau (Barcelona) among others. Her latest work is Tratado del Galope pt.1 (2023), which currently presents in its fresh and cheerful live, an authentic call to enjoyment.
