Ateneu Popular de 9 Barris

Ateneu Popular 9 Barris is a public socio-cultural centre that adheres to a community management model. It was created in 1977 as a result of the neighbourhood occupation of an asphalt plant that was built on the border between the neighbourhoods of Roquetes and Trinitat Nova. By restoring the idea of culture, intervention and links with the territory, it now strives to be a project that contributes to social transformation. The main pillars of the project are circus production and training, show programming, and community work within the territory.
