School Barri Besòs


The Barri Besòs Secondary School’s (Besòs i el Maresme, Sant Martí) seventh consecutive participation in the iN RESiDENCE programme, with a group of 4th-year students. It has previously participated in the project with the residencies of La Calòrica, Mariona Naudín, Andrés Waksman, nyam-nyam, Viviane Calvitti and Emília Gutiérrez Epstein.


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.
