Practical information


After almost 20 years of continued programming, the CCCB has consolidated its position as a respected point of reference; a focus of cultural and creative attraction for the city of Barcelona, for the whole of Catalonia and Spain, and internationally. The CCCB has proved its determination to be a place for production and creation as well as exhibition, bringing together a large number of committed cultural actors and users, all convinced that culture is a basic necessity.

Our publics, as varied as our range of activities, have seen that the CCCB offers a quality programme, marked by complete creative freedom, devoid of dogmatisms, in touch with different sensibilities, bringing a touch of eclecticism and a style of its own that doesn’t aim to impose trends, with a will to generate debate and take a critical look at the present moment. It considers quality as non-negotiable and is faithful at all times to two defining characteristics: an urban vocation and cultural quality.

At the same time, the CCCB is a place for experimentation with artistic languages and codes; a meeting place for dialogue between academia and citizens; a platform for innovation on the part of groups and creators, and a laboratory open to the cultural change underway.

At the CCCB, there’s always something interesting going on. Come and find out for yourself!
