Matadero Madrid, at the forefront of peace

This year’s chosen venue to host the second edition of the Forum reveals the desire to show how public space is another undeniable factor in the construction of cities of peace. Located alongside another reference in Madrid’s urban regeneration, Madrid Río, it boasts two rooms devoted to documentary film, various rooms devoted to stage arts, design, visual arts, exhibition study, experimentation and rehearsal rooms, as well as a public space, Plaza Matadero, unique in the city.

In just over a decade, Matadero Madrid, with more than 2000 activities a year, has placed Madrid at the forefront of the international scene and now it will be the venue for an event thanks to which Madrid will be placed in another helm: that of capitals of peace, bearing the City of Peace brand.
