The City Council offers grants and subsidies for many things, ranging from social actions to commerce and youth policies. By far the biggest block, however, nearly 80% of the total, is for district and city activities.
The Institute of Culture has approved 2017 subsidies, based on a competitive system set out by the regulations for granting subsidies for the renovation of theatres, auditoriums and similar facilities associated to the city of Barcelona and its provision of technical equipment for 2017.
The aim of the subsidies is to cooperate in conditioning theatres, auditoriums and similar venues providing they belong to non-profit socio-cultural spaces which are unable to bear the costs of renovation projects on their own.
Applications can be made from 15 July to 30 September 2017 at the registry desk at Barcelona Institute of Culture (La Rambla, 99). Application forms can be found on this page.
