The Cultural Center is in the process of announcing a competition to define its Executive Management. The proposal, promoted by the Board of Directors of the CCLM Foundation, seeks to find a leadership that is in constant dialogue with the workers of the Cultural Centre, other related organizations and the community.

Only then and with this information as a basis can we open the call today to lead this project,” explains Antonella Estévez Baeza, president of the board of directors of the CCLM.
