The idea of “Creando por Soria” stems from the prevailing need to avoid the mass exodus of the province of Soria, which demographically bleeds at an average rate of five inhabitants less every hour.
Soria is the most unpopulated province in Southern Europe (EUROSTAT), in the last 10 years it has gone from 94,646 to 88,600 inhabitants, with a population density of 8.7 inhabitants / km², an amazing figure when compared to 821 inhabitants / km² of the community of Madrid.
"Creando por Soria" is born from the prevailing need to avoid this exodus. This project has the purpose of valuing, promoting and disseminating art as a fundamental part of the restocking path.
With this project we intend to energize the cultural life of the people, prevent traditions from being lost and create bridges between the rural and urban world, by sharing experiences, removing geographical barriers and spreading the culture, history, traditions and values of the people and the region. Being a means to generate spaces for meeting, relationship and integration between locals and visitors, networking and activate the
cultural territory of the province. This project is a vehicle for the conservation of rural traditions and a way to foster creativity and education among the inhabitants themselves.
