School Barri Besòs


This is the eighth consecutive time that the Institut Barri Besòs (el Besòs and el Maresme, Sant Martí) has taken part in EN RESiDÈNCiA, with a group of students in the fourth year of ESO. It has previously participated in the programme with the residencies of La Calòrica, Mariona Naudín, Andrés Waksman, nyam-nyam, Viviane Calvitti, Emília Gutiérrez Epstein and Oriol Puig Grau.


The Institut Barri Besòs has been gradually built up since 1977, with the joint work of parents, teachers, pupils, neighbours, administrations, organisations and institutions. This collaboration has given rise to a public educational centre rooted in the social environment where it is located, open to the neighbourhoods it serves, with a democratic and participatory functioning, which has sought to implement a quality educational approach which is sensitive to the compensatory treatment of social inequalities, and which seeks to promote scientific and technological education and the values of humanistic culture.
