Atmósfera's Inspiration Events are a crucible for innovation and 'critical creative thinking' with engagement of the visual and performing arts, sciences, design, history, philosophy and all that is visionary and positive within the human condition. They are debate and contemplation engaging visionaries from all over the world who will be invited to Ronda to participate throughout each year. Atmósfera members will all be welcome to attend Inspiration Events and naturally the events will attract new members to the Atmósfera community.
The Inspiration Events are also a strategic part of creating a dynamic educational stimulus within Atmósfera'a education programme. All the talks, lectures, exhibitions, performances and atelier masterclasses which stem from the Inspiration Events will be filmed and archived by Atmósfera's film production team. This will form a significant library of knowledge and an invaluable teaching and learning resource for future generations.
Atmósfera's Inspiration Events will start in the first year and over time become a substantial programme. They will be hosted at the home of the Academy and in Ronda at a variety of dramatic venues and open air locations. Some of these will include Ronda's 500 seat Vicente Espinel Theatre (shown below) next to the gardens of the Alameda del Tajo, Ronda's open air cliff-edge amphitheatre the Auditorio de Blas Infante (shown below) and the old santa Domingo Convento, a 500 year old building now the Palacio de Congresos de Ronda, situated next to the dramatic Puneto Nuevo. Music and Performing Arts will evolve through the Inspiration Events programme and will become organically a part of the core curriculum of Atmósfera Academy's masterclasses and education programme.
