An international two-week street arts training. Taking advantage of two important stage events that take place in the region of Lleida in a short period of time, four companies will perform intensives of the subject for an audience interested in creating in public space.
We believe that street arts should be based on a theoretical and practical specialization of their performers. We are committed to a 360º vision of the sector and we want to work on the different disciplines that make up the street arts. In each edition of SPASA we will delve into the practical work and tools used by different internationally recognized companies and professionals in the sector.
The Objectives that we set ourselves with the creation of these courses are the following:
Help to implement training as an essential tool in the street arts sector.
Weave an international network of collaboration in the sector, taking advantage of the contacts and synergies that may arise from the courses.
Gathering consolidated companies, professionals and people who are just starting out.
Understand, learn and exchange techniques, knowledge, working methods and processes that I can start from the SAME base, the public space, but that have very different approaches.

WHAT IS FIRATÀRREGA?
FiraTàrrega is the international performing arts market that, since 1981, has been taking place annually in Tàrrega on the second weekend of September. A showcase of scenic creativity, with a heterogeneous program that pays special attention to street arts and public space.
FiraTàrrega is a space for the exhibition of contemporary performing arts and a meeting, contact, hiring and exchange point for the agents that operate in this cultural market.
WHAT IS AQUELARRE?
The Cervera Aquelarre is the festival of fire, music and the witches of the west lands, an explosion of popular culture that is celebrated in the city of Cervera every last Saturday in August.
HOW IT WORKS?
The course lasts 16 days and is divided into 2 blocks , the experience as a spectator and professional in two events of great importance and the learning as a student through the trainings.
The student will actively participate as an audience and attendee in these two events: FiraTàrrega and Aquelarre de Cervera. The organization will offer an immersive experience to these events, focusing on different aspects of these such as the organization, relationships with professionals or the preparation of the artists who will participate.
On the other hand, SPASA offers 72 teaching hours divided into four courses , taught by four companies specializing in different disciplines of street arts.
The course begins on August 28 with the arrival of participants in Cervera. On the same day, they will be able to enjoy the activities organized at the Aquelarre de Cervera.

The school year begins on Monday 30 August , with the workshops of the companies invited to this edition. There will be two companies per week offering between 4 and 5 sessions of four hours each.
