School Joan Brossa

The Joan Brossa Secondary School (El Baix Guinardó, Horta-Guinardó) participated in the second edition of iN RESiDENCE (2010-2011), hosting Josep Maria Balanyà’s creation process. In this edition, a group of 4th-year students take part.


A few months after the death of Joan Brossa (Barcelona 1919-1998), the Secondary School bearing his name was set up, founded as a result of the merger of the Mare de Déu de Montserrat and the Guinardó Secondary Schools. The new educational centre adopted the name of the most important, avant-garde Catalan poet of the second half of the 20th century.
