From the outset the FITEC has grown and matured. Today occupies a very representative place in the range of festivals and fairs and national vital for companies of Performing Arts in our country, and is also a festival of reference very interesting for foreign companies, especially those in the Community European Economic.

The FITEC takes place in the streets, squares and open spaces of the city, where it joins the man in his daily transit along the pedestrian area of ​​the city. These are the places where he spent the main action of the Festival, which establishes the necessary labor codes, valid to make it Exhibition of the entertainment industry, mainly in open spaces, or what is the same, in the natural environment of coexistence human, where the objectives are clearly marked on the idea of ​​promoting this fair called FITEC, creating one hand to link learning and development between art and artist-citizen-viewer within their natural environment.

Culture is the first recipient, albeit indirect, of the crisis at the expense of other social priorities, and even more in times of recession, looking like diminished attention. In FITEC we not cease ask every year in search of new ideas in the world of performing arts located in areas where conventional architecture is broken, bringing people to an everyday architecture that can be used, molded, transformed… A city must bring its infrastructure and public spaces between all citizens to build city and citizens, sustainable city.

Our main intention is to articulate the necessary space for the encounter between artists from theater, circus, dance and music; and that it is both cultural agents and representatives and the world of marketing, entertainment and events, so that together they can link their efforts on common projects in a simple but effective yet competitive, and thus generate wealth in a sector severely strained today by the crisis.

It is likewise clear criteria and marking from the Festival, the artists suggest creating new and to show themselves in the FITEC, endeavor in which ideas, experiments and conclusions that we conducted since 1996, as experience of Arts in the street… in the Open Spaces.

Creations and rescue work direct communication with the pedestrian, the walker, the wayfarer, also with the passenger or user of public spaces, the person who is the artistic proposal, and can react to it as his most immediate emotion you dictates. Pure Performance, the “unusual events” with which bursts into everyday life.

For years, youth groups and new creators have made calls over the Internet with great success. There are new proposals to invade public transport and other areas of civic life, where the traveler, the traveler, the casual viewer, it takes an indefinite period of his life, inviting him to come out of the everyday, transforming their experience into an artistic experience. Are being touches of art in times and places where the everyday becomes outstanding, and where the viewer is witnessing excellence of a work dedicated to them. established rules is violated, the traditional canons for the expression of art, transmuting at times the roles of spectator artist and the artist in viewer, for art and culture is we inherent to all human beings, and spectatorship is an occasional paper that makes us all think alike, in different ways to the same artistic fact.

The FITEC, with the passing of time and the experience gained in all his years of experience, since in 1996 launched its first proposals to the street, has matured its strategic lines, working for years on three main lines performance:

The FAIR: Almost from the first moment of his birth FITEC has claimed to be trade and economic showcase of culture in the Community of Madrid. We must remember that culture contributes approximately 3.5% Spanish GDP, and we believe that professionals and artists working in this sector of economic activity, should be considered not only for their contribution to the cultural and social wealth of its surroundings, but as mechanisms of economic development and generators employment in our community. Thus the FITEC, is channeling all these synergies towards promoting companies and artists, with a special look to residents in the Community of Madrid, in relation to their products to show the cultural programs of our country, dedicating a space: tHE PORTAL, as a space for professional exchange purchase and sale of cultural products, with consequent advantages and promotions that any Fair Sector can offer.

The FESTIVAL: As the first letter of its name suggests, the FITEC has settled himself in a sample culture trends and innovative proposals, which aims to break with the conventional structures of how to display the cultural event. As a meeting between artists and spectators, where the artist’s message with the surrounding society is clear and direct, where streets, squares, the city becomes a big stage, filling their spaces Art and Culture

The PARTY: During the days that elapses FITEC, the city transforms spaces of peaceful coexistence in a long-awaited party by neighbors, as we check with the massive influx of spectators at each edition, transforming the city into a host leisure and cultural activities. Making the streets and squares of the city become a fun and festive party, where smiles of spectators intermingle with the bustle of pedestrians outside and surprised by the change, for a few days the city hosts, transforming during those days regular and inert spaces surprising and lively spaces.

We need to continue with the enthusiasm and dedication with which we approach each year the organization of the Festival – Fair – Party. When an event of this nature is part of a people it can not be broken without more if modified and adapted to the evolution of time, and this is what happens when after 17 editions of artistic activity in urban space, it causes critical attitude, personal growth of the spectators, who are faced with an event they consider theirs. We are aware that we are part of that personal growth, providing artistic references, providing them with greater insight and sensitivity to beauty in a time when social reality travels at breakneck speed, where values ​​are confused very easily, in which replaces the urgent important, where the ability to surprise people has been diminished by a reality of frenetic changes.
