Prosperous regions recognise art, culture and all creative activities as a factor that promotes the generation of employment and the creation of value that extends to other economic sectors, while at the same time contributing to boosting the image of the territory. 

In any case, this is a complex relationship that requires awareness of both the difficult profitability of many cultural activities and the risks of interpreting culture exclusively from an economic standpoint. In short, it is a question of the need to establish minimum conditions for combining cultural diversity, economic development and sustainability.

The United Nations has placed cultural policies in different countries at the centre. These issues will be central to this challenge and will be addressed from the perspective of the Sustainable Development Goals.


At Phileas Flow we believe that Andalusia has an enormous artistic and cultural potential that has been compromised due to the pandemic we are experiencing worldwide.

In this sense we are selecting cultural projects and productions of a non-conventional and innovative nature that generate wealth and employment related to the Creative Industries sector, understood as Video Art, illustration, fashion, jewellery design, music, street art, performing arts, film, visual arts, installations, performance and dance.

The best five (5) initiatives will be published in the cultural magazine Poet Fanzine #6. 

In its 6th edition Poet will also deal with Andalusian culinary art through its protagonists and local producers.

The aim is to highlight the gastronomic and tourist sectors of Andalusia.The edition will have a very careful art direction with photographs by Xavier Boet from Barcelona.

It is vitally important to contextualise the Fanzine within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Agenda 2030 proposed by the United Nations; for which the magazine is proposed as a disseminator of the Agenda in the following objectives: 

SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

SDG 9: Build a resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.

SDG 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

SDG 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
