In July 2010, the Consejo Superior de Deportes [CSD] (Sports Council) in collaboration with Idensitat [iD #6] announced a call for interdisciplinary projects promoting the relationship between sport and the social, cultural and creative areas.
The call was open to two categories, Project Laboratory and Project Bank, and addressed three types of projects:
1. Projects about physical activity and sports promoted by organisations, associations, sports clubs, local councils, regional councils, and autonomic goverments mainly concerned with social inclusion as well as social intervention through sport in disadvantaged zones.
2. Creative projects proceeding from different disciplines (artists, architects, designers, etc.) that organise or promote projects based on sporting subjects and with special orientation towar ds social questions.
3. Hybrid projects arising from the relationship between creators and organisations, sports clubs, social educators, etc.; proposing collaborative work and concerning subjects of inclusion or social intervention through this relationship between creativity and sport.
Between July and October 2010, Idensitat received 179 proposals for the category of Project Laboratory, and 80 for the Project Bank category.
A selection committee, formed by six specialists in creative fields and sports, was in charge for the selection of the proposals that would be developed in differents contexts of Spain.
