ISPA: Martin, what are the three adjectives that describe you? 
Passionate, talkative, ans sociable.
ISPA: What’s your favorite city in the world?
New York City, no doubt about this. When people say it is the capital of the world I always say it is like the kitchen of a house. Good ideas come from there!!!
ISPA: Can you name one channel that you subscribe to or frequently visit to stay up-to-date with news about the arts and culture in your region? 

As to arts development in my region I pay close attention to the OEI (Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture) website. It helps me being informed on whats happening in the Ibero-America region. Regarding arts management I also visit the Ibero-American Cultural Management Portal often.

And as to arts in general a great website that has a very important newsletter is ON THE MOVE, which is a cultural mobility information network.

ISPA: Is there anything in particular that you would like the ISPA colleagues and friends to know about you or your work?

I had a career as a dancer and then stopped performing and started working in arts management. I discovered a huge passion, making things happen. That is my motto - MAKE IT HAPPEN. I feel my experiences as an artist also help me to be more sensible about arts demands and needs. I am now looking for ways to involve audience in public policies regarding culture and in that way being able to participate actively in the cultural life of the communities.
