The eighth edition of Concéntrico expands the usual focus of the festival, the Historic Centre of Logroño, and explores new urban practices by taking the proposals to locations that expand it in a constant listening that evolves to continue to raise debates that look at the city itself.

Locations that connect the festival with new landscapes such as Monte Cantabria, a viewpoint over the city, or the river Ebro next to the riverbed; unique urban spaces with which to work on the scale of proximity such as La Rosaleda del Paseo del Espolón or Obispo Bustamante street; or the new urban areas and spaces in transformation such as the Parque Felipe VI or the empty lot in Calle Marqués de San Nicolás.

The digital version of the Concéntrico 08 programme is now available with meetings, workshops, conversations and exhibitions. In addition, the schedule of activities by days and their booking is available on the website in order to don’t miss the contents that will reflect on the city, architecture and ways of relating to each other at a time as relevant as the present.
