Biography made in 2018

School Jaume Balmes

It has taken part in two editions of IN RESiDENCE with Pep Duran (2016-2017) and Alícia Casadesús (2017-2018). In this new edition, it is participating with a group of pupils in the fourth year of compulsory secondary education. 


Founded in 1845, the Institut Jaume Balmes is the second oldest secondary school in Barcelona and one of the teaching institutions most deeply rooted in the city’s contemporary history. Since 1942, it has been situated at the junction of Carrer de Pau Claris with Carrer del Consell de Cent in the Eixample district. The school’s cultural project encompasses the arts and sciences and cultural and social aspects and roots the centre in its neighbourhood and the city, a project that binds its members together and identifies them.
