Public processes for cultural centres

25 February 2016


Culture , Transparency

  • Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona

From now on, the directors of Barcelona's cultural centres will be chosen through a public process, instead of being handpicked. I use this news as an example to illustrate how we are changing things and moving towards more ethical and transparent politics, which we are extending throughout the municipal government's operational areas as well as all companies that offer public services.

We have done more for transparency in 8 months than was achieved over the last few decades. We would like to move faster, but change requires time. We have created a Transparency Agency in the City Council and the Metropolitan Area, we have made our agendas public, our budgets accessible, and we have published our salaries. And, as soon as we can, we will do the same with each and every public company under the City Council's responsibility.
