Debate Sessions. June 20 / July 11.

The agents of the Visual Arts of Catalonia will meet to discuss the situation of our sector. We want that our arts regain the cultural strength and social implementation that they never should have lost.

The creation is born at the bottom. And we propose sessions to reflect on the recent past (the cuts of funds in the world of culture, art centers closing, erratic policies in small and large institutions, difficulties in mediation ...) and the future of art in Catalonia and its relationship with society.

Artists, gallerists, critics and curators, art center managers, teachers ... we want to discuss and explore some of the issues that affect us.
