Between September 20 and 24, Barcelona celebrates its biggest festival, La Mercè. These parties are an opportunity to rediscover the spaces of the city, observe year after year the evolution of a changing space, enjoy a range of free and diverse activities and be moved by a multicultural, innovative, active and modern space. You can check the program of activities at the following link: https://www.barcelona.cat/merce/recursos/docs/Merce19-Programa.pdf
Barna Center as every year participates in these parties organizing a children's drawing contest well known to all the schools in Barcelona: the contestixix la Mercè. In each call the talented children of the city offer us their particular vision of these parties through drawing. This activity is located within the program of activities that we carry out every year with the collaboration of the Barcelona City Council and the Institute of Culture (ICUB).
This time we want to celebrate the 25 years of this event that has become a tradition, on a date that schools have marked in their calendar of activities. For this reason we prepare a special awards ceremony, where children are the main protagonists and homage is made to the educational work carried out by teachers in Barcelona.
We await the drawings of this edition from October 7 until October 18 in our offices, at Portal del Ángel Avenue, 7 3rd B, the awards ceremony will be held at the emblematic "Saló de Cent" of the City Hall of Barcelona during the month of November, and different authorities will attend to deliver the awards. We thank you for your participation and we look forward to seeing the samples of talent and creativity of the children.
See you soon! ;)
