The training is one of the fundamental axes around which MAPAS revolves, a meeting that is integrated into the Tenerife 2030 strategy, as it is an essential element for the development of the musical and scenic industries. Culture needs to have solvent structures that allow its growth and viability and for this reason, for several months now, the MAPAS organization has given special importance to the educational field as an action that allows the consolidation, dissemination and expansion of artistic projects.

All these proposals, together with the opportunities for exchanging experiences that are provided for all attendees at MAPAS, consolidate the commitment of the South Atlantic Performing Arts Market for training as one of its main objectives, promoting and strengthening related initiatives to the performing and musical arts, reinforcing their viability and contributing to the launch of artistic proposals.

MAPAS has the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC / E) through the Program for the Internationalization of Spanish Culture, through which this year four international programmers may be present at MAPAS, three of them from African countries, to learn about first hand to the creators and productions that will be presented during the market, as well as to participate in the various activities that have been organized.
