School Escola Turó de Roquetes

This is the Turó de Roquetes Secondary School’s second consecutive participation in the iN RESiDENCE programme. In the previous edition, it hosted the creation process of Sonia Gómez, with the mediation of the Mercat de les Flors and Graner. Once again, the Turó de Roquetes Secondary School participates in the programme with a group of 1st-year students.

/

Turó de Roquetes was created in 2011, the result of the integration of two primary schools in the Roquetes district (Nou Barris): the Gaudí and Sant Antoni Maria Claret schools. Turó de Roquetes connects its participation in iN RESiDENCE with the desire to put performance arts at the centre of its education project.
