Spanish Creators in New York is a section within the website of the Consulate General of Spain in New York, which consists on a series of interviews with creative professionals living in New York. These artists belong to a range of disciplines including: theater, literature, visual arts, music, dance, architecture, design and gastronomy.

Some of the most recently published interviews correspond to the writer and member of the Royal Spanish Academy, Antonio Muñoz Molina; the architect, artist, theorist and professor at Columbia University, Jorge Otero-Pailos; the conductor, pianist and professor of Spanish Literature at Fordham University Rafael Lamas; the director of Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, Eva Franch; the actress and theater producer, Puy Navarro and the visual artist Isidro Blasco.
Previously interviews featured visual artists Antoni Muntadas, Elena del Rivero and Juan Usle, the architect Ana Maria Torres, the musicians Cristina Pato and Ricardo Llorca, the filmmaker Martin Rosete, the theater producer, Angel Gil Orrios, the chef Marc Vidal and the writer Eduardo Lago, among others.

The purpose of these dialogues with creators is to highlight their professional profiles through their experiences, their work and projects and to show through the website the activity of Spanish culture performed in the United States.

This section of interviews with creators supplements the work already being done by the Consulate General of Spain in New York, thereby strengthening its support for promoting Spanish culture and the arts and culture. Interviews are a living example of bilateral cultural relations between both countries. Through the experiences of the interviewed, this interaction shows the involvement of Spanish artists in American cultural life and their contribution to the multiculturalism of the city of New York.
