Special Guests

138 editors in 32 cities around the world



A interdependent cluster that grows, 

is structured and evolves 

as a network interconnected 

by artists & platforms, 

professionals & entities, 

institutions & companies.


Special Guests is a team that functions on interdependency: the presentation of different proposals, aesthetics, ideas and principles, that thanks to encounter and exchange can influence and  contaminate each other and evolve together.


Special Guests offers a platform, a space and moment to show innovative work.


Special Guests is founded on a great concentration of talent, professionalism and creativity  that we will present in future editions, online projects, events and exhibitions. With this initiative, collecting trends and strengthening stimuli, we put forward current topics, reflection, and innovation, we will launch questions and challenges, we will spark new focuses and possibilities for collaboration, co-operation, and development within new formats.

And, above all, within new, unheard of and surprising links, comprising the necessary coexistence of tradition with originality, of rigour with an indispensable dose of madness, from canonic to unclassifiable: our content presents and incites new relationships between scenic arts and other disciplines such as ecology sustainability, social conscience , the urban environment and wide list of cultural and popular manifestations occurring in it. Who knows –why not dream?–, until we can glimpse possible clues and new ways to face the current global situation, via the sum of efforts and new working models.
