• Volunteer in a cultural centre in Barcelona •
A real insight into the Spanish culture
Live with local people
Learn new skills!
The Enriquez Arte Cultural Center is a non-profit organization which aims to educate and include a local family audience. The place is also open to the entire population of Barcelona and to international projects wishing to reside in Barcelona.
A team of volunteers alternates to offer free cultural workshops in sports, artistic, well-being and personal development fields. Thus, through participatory diversity and proximity, innovative teaching methods are offered including emotional intelligence in all workshops.
Volunteers from all over the world come to discover new skills thanks to this operational work.
The association took up residence in a 1000m2 industrial warehouse that had been abandoned for years. After contacting the owner, the association legally occupied the space and obtained the license for cultural activities in the neighborhood of Nou Barris / Horta-Guinardo. Thus, with the help of other neighbors, an active team of volunteers has gradually established itself by offering the opening of this space every day of the week.
It is therefore a participatory community that makes this cultural centre a reality.
All the people who stay at the centre are invited to participate in a process of sociocratic development, where collective intelligence is a fundamental factor for the success of this project.
Through this process and the collaboration of all those involved in the life of the center, an international community is created with a sense of local belonging.
This programme is available all year round
The cultural centre is located in the Nou Barris district in the north of Barcelona.
