Kop de mà

Kop de mà is a cooperative bar located in the Sants neighbourhood. The project was launched in 2013 as a meeting point where workers could organise themselves collectively and horizontally on the basis of mutual support, creating an alternative to the marketplace and the precarious wage labour that is typical of the service industry.

Kop de mà is part of the Impuls Cooperatiu de Sants network, through which cultural activities like Vermuts Coop and La Fresca, Outdoor Cinema and Cooperativism have been organised to provide a cultural programme in different locations around the Sants neighbourhood. In collaboration with other local cooperatives, they explore the possibilities of operating solely with suppliers who are part of the solidarity and proximity economy.
