Enjoy an activity-filled summer in the Sant Marti neighborhood

This summer, the Disseny Hub and its surrounding areas are full of cultural activities for everyone to enjoy.

The Disseny Hub will remain open all summer: Monday from 4-9 p.m., Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Inside the museum, you can enjoy the museum's facilities as well as the services offered by the cafeteria.

The El Clot-Josep Benet Library will also maintain its regular hours, although doors will be closed on Saturday morning during the month of July. During August, the library will be open on Saturdays as the other library in the neighborhood will be closed for renovations.

The Museu del Disseny will continue opening from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Throughout the summer, you can visit the four permanent exhibitions, among which is the latest to open to the public: ‘Do You Design or Work: The new visual communication. 1980-2003’.

In sala A and sala B at the Disseny Hub you can also visit two exhibitions free of charge. Running until October 14, ‘The Best Design of the Year’ shows more than 500 works and local projects at the municipal, state and international level. The exhibit includes the works of finalists and winners of different awards that were given by the Foment de les Arts Decoratives (FAD) during Barcelona Design Week 2018.

BASICS: a walk to question ourselves’ is extended until July 22. It is an exhibition that recreates the atmosphere of a park through five installations. Thanks to a walking passage, we return to the most essential elements of life - water or land - and ask ourselves about what we can do to re-evaluate our environment.

Until July 29, ELISAVA gardens are hosting a pilot installation where locals can discover APROPone of the latest solutions that the Barcelona City Council will implement to deal with the eviction of residents from their neighborhoods. The installation is accompanied by outdoor activities and outdoor cinema, on Thursdays at 10 p.m.

If you are looking forward to more cinema, you can return to the ELISAVA gardens on Fridays, throughout July and August to watch the shorts presented by Mecal Air . The eight sessions are free of charge.

Until the end of July, you can also enjoy activities at La Farinera del Clot, as part of the 8th edition of humor and summer. 

This month, the Grec Festival come to the neighborhood and more specifically at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (TNC) and Sala Beckett. Between June 28 and July15, ‘Falsestuff’ lands at the TNC and invites the audience to speculate on the difference between originals and copies. Directed and performed in part by Nao Albet and Marcel Borràs, the work is inspired by the Shakespearian character, Falstaff.

And, from June 25 and until July 29, at Sala Beckett you can see 'Una gossa en un descampat’', a work that explores the confrontation of fear and the story of a overcoming a difficult experience: the death of a unborn child. The playwright is Clàudia Cedó,who is artist in residence at Sala Beckett this season and the work is directed by Sergi Belbel.

And if you still have time and energy, you can head over to the Mercat dels Encants, and search for antique treasures. The market is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
