The new Spanish Soho

A PROPOSAL to turn the centre of Malaga into the Spanish equivalent of Soho has the backing of the Mayor.

The idea to transform the ensanche de Muelle Heredia district into a vibrant hub for culture and the arts was first presented by residents and businesses in the area.

Now, the Mayor of Malaga, Francisco de la Torre, has announced it could be a reality within three to four years.

The area, located between the port, the Alameda, the river and the park, is set to be renovated to host themed markets, cultural activities and book fairs.

And the Mayor has promised 1.5 million euros of Town Hall funding to help the project come to life.

I propose to create transartistic events: seasonal/annual /bieannial for example photographic /video contests collectables for making joint collages of pop art by the actualization of social networks in performance arts: directors of theatre ,dance,mime,music,for interested participants to gather audiences by the time managment of the mayors at their respective cities.
