Main feature of the measure:

The CECREA Programme is developed in each of the regions of the country, from the Regional Offices of the National Council for Culture and the Arts, in partnership with public, private institutions and civil organizations to support the project.

CECREA promotes the right to imagine and create, from citizens, from 7 to 19 years through the development of creative learning processes and the generation of creative skills, emerging from the convergence of different disciplines or subjects. It is through this experience (arts, science, technology and sustainability and its infinite potential crosses), which it aims to encourage and promote the development of collective, participatory and creativity in the territory, establishing children and youth, flexible, sensitive and rich with the world around them relationships.

The Programme seeks through this convergence to develop processes that allow the strengthening of a divergent and creative thinking, where all the particulars can be accommodated. It is to put all the human potential in terms of learning whose focus is respect for the environment, the love for the difference representing the other, and collaboration. This look is complemented from a human rights perspective, where children and young people exercise their rights actively, within a framework of respect and listening, encouraging participation and collaboration, with autonomy and particularities, then learning to be critical citizens and integrals.
