Spanish Tourist Office launches SPN e-mag across all digital platforms
Cutting edge culture and arts magazine now available online and across IOS, Android and Kindle Fire platforms
The Spanish Tourist Office’s digital culture and arts magazine, SPN, goes multi-platform from today. This cutting edge magazine, which showcases the very best of contemporary Spanish design, arts, culture, gastronomy, travel and music, is now available to read online or as a free download on iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Kindle Fire and Android devices.
The crisis in Spain may have impacted heavily on the economy, but difficult times have given life to many artistic talents and the country has seen a real surge in creativity with unique art installations brightening up the streets, new musicians speaking out and the country’s gastronomic offering going from strength to strength. The Spanish Tourist Office in London wanted to highlight these talents to a UK audience and SPN Magazine aims to demonstrate the cultural richness to be found in Spain’s cities and urban hubs away from the beach resorts.
From taking a look at where the Go-go’s go in Ibiza’s low season, Spain’s blossoming cabaret culture and Valencia’s art collectives, to the hottest property from Madrid Fashion Week and interviews with Ferran Adrià, Manolo Blahnik, Jane Joyd and the pastry chef with a difference, Christian Escribà. The latest issue of SPN also features a specially designed video front cover by light graffiti artist, SUSO33, and an intriguing look at the most unlikely places to find street art.
SPN is the brainchild of Enrique Ruiz de Lera, Director of the Spanish Tourist Office in London and editor in chief of the e-mag. Antonio Molina-Vazquez, the editor, is the founder and director of Spain NOW!, the annual season of Spanish arts in London. Antonio has over 20 years’ arts experience both in Spain and at key London venues such as the South London Gallery and the Tate Modern. His experience directing Spain NOW! has positioned him as a go-to contact for emerging Spanish artists, as well as ensuring he is on the pulse of London’s own vibrant arts scene.
Enrique Ruiz de Lera, director of the Spanish Tourist Office in the UK, commented “We’re delighted that SPN is now more easily accessible to a wider digital audience. We first trialled the app on iPad, but it quickly became clear that the format lends itself perfectly to online and other digital devices as well. SPN offers a window to both a contemporary and unconventional Spain by using all the possibilities the digital world offers and I hope that through this e-magazine we can encourage people to delve a little deeper into what has long been Britain's most popular tourism destination.”
