La Casa Encendida welcomes the 3rd First Person Madrid Festival, a leading event featuring creators from different artistic disciplines whose work is based on their own life experiences. Through lectures and talks, these creators will get up close and personal with the audience as they share snippets of their lives.

This year our guests will be cartoonist and illustrator Tom Gauld, music writer and critic Simon Reynolds, and writer Vivian Gornick, who will give an in-depth interview to journalist and screenwriter Anna Guitart. The event will continue on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 May in its 7th edition at the CCCB in Barcelona.
