Description

In 1995, different people from diverse horizons got together in order to create a collective and solidarity project , which would become “la fabrica” . The starting point of this gathering was the shared vision of inequality in the access and the participation of the population in the cultural activities. In 1997 the cultural centre “la fabrica” was created and since then many cultural and social activities where presented and developed there like recitals, artistic exhibitions, literature workshops, alphabetization courses, workshops and non formal trainings .

Through the years of activity, la fabrica became a pluricultural space, creating a cultural and social network in which are opened different spaces of participation, expression and exchanges of experience. Our cultural, social and economical productions numbers many stories of solidarity and search of human dignity that we believe must be know from all. Our experience showed us that cultural development must be generated and promoted , but also that one should guaranty the social conditions for its reproduction and sustainability.
