School Escola Trinitat Nova


The Trinitat Nova (TN) School’s (Trinitat Nova, Nou Barris) fourth consecutive participation in the iN RESiDENCE programme. The TN School links its participation to the iN RESiDENCE programme within the framework of its unique cultural feature (visual arts and audio-visual communication). In previous editions it has hosted the creation processes of Isamit Morales (2019-2020), Arnau Sala (2020-2021) and Lina Bautista (2021-2022). Once again, a group of 3rd-year students take part in it.


The Trinitat Nova School is a global educational proposal that is set up as the only educational centre (0-16 years) within the framework of broader socio-educational facilities and proposals in the Trinitat Nova neighbourhood. The TN School’s proposal links educational action to community action, as its difficult to have a complete meaning if they work independently, and as they align they become more useful and more interesting.

The TN School is set up as an educational, community and creativity space in Trinitat Nova as a provision for the entire community just as it is, and it offers an integrative and coherent proposal in all its areas of action. The centre’s students can identify themselves with this, and be protagonists in proposals and spaces that interact with the neighbourhood and the other children and young people involved in the proposals for the facilities. As a meeting and construction space, it aims to offer opportunities and experiences so that everyone can develop their abilities, so that students, families, other children, youngsters in the neighbourhood and residents become and feel like the protagonists of the proposals and feel like the facilities belong to them.
