CCCB General Director

Judit Carrera (Barcelona, 1974) has led four major projects as head of Debate and Education at the CCCB. Working with an extensive local and international network of intellectuals and institutions, she has initiated and been responsible for cycles of lectures and debates on the great challenges faced by contemporary society. She is also in charge of the CCCB’s Education programme which takes into account the fact that the future of culture lies at the intersection where the domains of education and culture meet. She is director of the European Prize for Urban Public Space which, working with Europe’s leading architecture museums, constitutes a privileged observatory of European cities, and is also head of the CCCB Archive, a multimedia space which makes available to the public a wide range of material created by the CCCB over the years of its activity.

With a degree in Political Science from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Judit Carrera went on to complete a postgraduate degree (Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies) at the Institut d’Études Politiques-Sciences Po (Paris Institute of Political Studies). In Paris she worked in UNESCO’s Analysis and Forecasting Office and, subsequently, in the UNESCO Centre of Catalonia, in Forum 2004, and in the Department of International Relations of the Barcelona City Council.

With more than twenty years’ experience in the areas of culture and international relations, Judit Carrera has initiated and led European projects and has worked with such institutions as the Open Society Foundation, the Rolex Arts Initiative, the British Academy, the London School of Economics, the European Time to Talk network, the Collège d’Études Mondiales in Paris, the Círculo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Circle) in Madrid, ICREA (Catalan Institute for Research and Advanced Studies) and PEN International Catalan Centre. She has lectured in Bard College (New York), the Venice Biennale, the Accademia di architettura (Mendrisio, Switzerland), the Center for Architecture (New York), Cerisy (Normandy), l’École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Paris), and the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations in Marseille, among many others.

She has been a member of the Barcelona Culture Council (2011-2016) and, on several occasions, a member of the jury for the City of Barcelona Prize. She is also a columnist for the newspaper Ara.
