Tabakalera is an international centre for contemporary culture located in Donostia / San Sebastian, which welcomes and encourages collaborations between different cultural institutions and projects. Our shared mission is to support the cultural and creative sector, contribute to developing Basque society's creative and critical abilities, and foster the availability and enjoyment of culture.

As a centre for creation, Tabakalera has the key goal of encouraging talent, raising awareness on contemporary creation, and promoting what the creative and cultural sector brings to the table for all other sectors and society at large. One of the main ressources to do this is the artists’ space of Tabakalera: a 1,000 sqm place with artists’ studios that hosts the artists in residency programs.
The Medialab, launched in 2020, supports projects at the intersection of Arts, Science, Technology and Society.
