The Cerezales Antonino y Cinia Foundation (FCAYC) is a private institution, dedicated to the development of our homeland and the transfer of knowledge through two channels: cultural productions and ethno-education.

Among the core subjects which articulate these two channels is art as we know it today, music, the environment, sociology and economy.

At the heart of FCAYC’s policy is its desire to ensure that everyone in the community has access to culture and to the production and sharing of knowledge.

As an agency for regional development, its function is to be a driving force and a link between local, regional, national and international agents.
The headquarters of the Foundation was established in December 2008 in the former school of Cerezales del Condado, a town located 14 miles from the city of León in the Northeast of Spain. From here the Cerezales Antonino y Cinia Foundation organizes a wide range of activities including exhibitions, concerts, workshops, lecture programmes, resident artists, its own productions and co-productions with other institutions and companies, festivals, trips, excursions, projects related to the study of and respect for the countryside and many other activities that one expects in a knowledge-based society.

The Foundation is a sustainable project thanks to the support of its founder, Mr. Antonino Fernandez
