Hi everyone! As you may or may not know, March is women’s history month. We want to let you know of a few activities that you can do during the month.
This fun little event is hosted by Slow Fashion & Co in order to promote a more sustainable mode of clothing consumption. Here, you can bring your old clothes (as long as they are in good shape) and exchange them with clothes that other people have brought. Bringing clothes or getting clothes are not mandatory in order to participate, as leftover clothes are donated to a charity that helps children and teens at risk of social exclusion.

This year from March 4-8, the Maritime Museum of Barcelona is hosting the Fira d’Art Modern i Antic de Barcelona. This Gallery seeks to explore the unique history of Catalan art dating back hundreds of years. From paintings, to furniture, to jewelry and sculptures, this exhibit has it all. And this year, buying a ticket to the Maritime Museum, gives you access to the MNAC and vice versa.
The MNAC museum in Barcelona is one of the most famous in the city. On March 8th, the museum is opening its doors for all women to get in free! Once inside, you will be able to enjoy an exhibit dedicated to great women.
Also highly recommended is the Cannabis Museum in Barcelona. The museum seeks to explore the history of the plant and its uses.
