Cultural Centre of Spain in Malabo
Promoting Spanish culture, mixed with the local.
One of the top cultural forces in the city.
Located between the airport and the historical core of Malabo, this is one of the largest cultural centres in the capital. Its origin as the Cultural Centre of Spain dates back to 2003 (until then it was known as the Hispanic-Guinean Cultural Centre). Its main objectives include the dissemination of Spanish culture, cooperation between different cultural traditions, and to support local artists and intellectuals. It also does important work in favor of the fight against poverty, modernisation of the Equatoguinean economy, the promotion of democratic values, equality between men and women and respect for the environment. The CCEM also holds regular art exhibitions in which the works of young local artists are usually presented. It also offers workshops for artistic and cultural education as well as film screenings, games, music or theatre.
