#CelebremBCN (Let’s celebrate Barcelona) campaign gives visibility to the wealth of origins and life experiences peacefully co-existing in Barcelona.
The festivals organised in frame of the #CelebremBCN campaign are open to all residents and provide a space for intercultural dialogue and for learning about each other. In addition, they are a way of exercising citizen rights, such as cultural rights and the access to the city and its public spaces, as many of the celebrations take place on the city’s streets.
#CelebremBCN is committed to an inclusive city model in which diversity is acknowledged and respected and there is a dialogue between different cultures. In 2019, this campaign gave visibility to 25 different festivities resulting in meeting places for communities from all over the world that have settled in Barcelona and made it their home. During nine months, Barcelona’s neighbourhoods hosted cultural, traditional, religious and national festivities with one thing in common: the creation of community and intergenerational spaces where different cultural roots can be connected to the city that people have chosen to live in.
