Itziar Rubio

I am an artivist by nature. Related from my childhood with music and dance. I have a Degree in Business Administration and Management, and a MBA in Leadership from the Deusto Business School. Master in Decentralized International Cooperation from the University of the Basque Country.

Throughout my career I had the opportunity to be beneficiary of different international education programmes, -Courant du Monde from Université Dauphine París, and a 2 years internship at the International Cultural Centers Network of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation. I have 13 years of professional specialization in cultural project management, cultural diplomacy and collaborative cultural networks creation at institutions as UNESCO, Ministry of Culture of Perú and many NGOs. (Iniciativa La Tarumba)

Co-Founder of Window to Diversity, a global platform of co-creativity connecting young people around the world through art and new media to co-create innovative solutions for socio-cultural issues.

Currently, I am responsible for the internationalization of the Fair Saturday (FS). FS is a global cultural movement with social impact based on the open and participatory organisation of artistic and cultural activities all around the world every last Saturday of November. Borned in Bilbao, since 2014, FS has created an international cities network, with 12 official Hubs in Europe and LatinAmerica. In the 2018 edition, we celebrated 600 events in 104 cities in favor of 320 social causes.

I am very interested in participating in “Art and citizenship” area since our goal is connecting the artistic and cultural ecosystem creating a triple value proposition. I am also interested in participating in "Value of art in social fabric" because in times where materialism, where having is what prevails, we must collectively reflect on the value of being.
