ESPRONCEDA – Center for Art & Culture was founded in 2013 in Barcelona and is an innovative centre for the contemporary arts, education and cultural diffusion.
Its mission is to provide multidisciplinary environment and a platform for creation which promotes international dialogue between artists, curators, critics, gallery owners, collectors, cultural institutions and lovers of art & culture.
The ESPRONCEDA programme provides production residencies for national/international artists & curators and curates a cumulative exhibition of their work in Barcelona at the end of each residency.
Espronceda encourages international artists, both established and emerging, to develop their own work and creativity, and to spread their inspiration beyond their physical stay in space.
The centre promotes educational and cultural programs and diffusions by presenting exhibitions and concepts by renowned artist as well as by exploring curatorial concepts and by organising a variety of concerts, workshops, roundtables and hosting meetings for art professionals.
ESPRONCEDA believes in international cooperation and has established agreements with internationally renowned organisations like APT (Artists Pension Trust), Rufa University, the Royal College of Arts, and many more to allow for the development of a global exchange of ideas, and for creators to contribute to a greater tolerance and understanding of world cultures.
