School Josep Comas i Solà

IES Comas i Solà, where Erick Beltrán and Mireia C. Saladrigues, Daniela Ortiz, Jeleton, Toni Mira, Anna Pantinat and Constanza Brnčić have developed creation processes, is taking part in IN RESiDENCE for the seventh time, and on this occasion it is with a group of 3rd- and 4th-year compulsory secondary education (ESO) students. 


The Institut Comas i Solà (Trinitat Vella, Sant Andreu) was created in 1990 in response to pressure from residents keen to ensure that local youngsters did not have to travel to other neighbourhoods in order to pursue their secondary education. The centre is named after Josep Comas i Solà, an astronomer who popularised science and promoted modern astronomy in Catalonia and was also the director of the Fabra Observatory.
