Focusing on MilesKm's central concern, encouraging international collaboration, over 100 artists from the United Kingdom, Spain and Holland were invited to La Tabacalera, a space that used to be a Tobacco factory in Madrid.

Prior to meeting in Madrid, Artists from different countries were paired up two months in advance. MilesKm encouraged these pairs of artists to work together and to overcome the distance that separated them.

Once in Madrid the collaborators spent a week finalizing their projects, exploring the city and meeting the other members of the event.
The project culminated in a one-day show, titled '1071mi = 1724km", at La Tabacalera, where all the collaborative projects were realized, a stage was created to host theatre performance and music acts from the UK and Spain.
