From November 9th to November 12th, the Raval(s) Culture Festival will take center stage, bringing forth a rich tapestry of free activities spanning six locations throughout the Raval neighborhood. Expect to be captivated by theater performances, dance exhibitions, art installations, enlightening discussions, and informative booths, all of which will saturate the Raval neighborhood with culture.

This year’s festival is particularly noteworthy for its emphasis on three central themes: feminism, anti-racism, and climate change. Moreover, it is firmly committed to creating a family-friendly environment, aiming to engage people of all ages in these recreational spaces. For instance, on Friday, November 10th, at 1:00 PM, the MACBA will host an interactive storytelling session on emotional well-being.
