“Mescla’t” is an action implemented in the frame of the civil rights policies from Sabadell City Council. It consists in a festive day that brings together those who work in Sabadell for the culture of solidarity, active participation, and the promotion of diversity benefits and coexistence. This day aims for the social inclusion of everyone and the commitment to human rights.
The programme of that day includes different activities in the space public: concerts, rap and hip-hop exhibits, various workshops, shows of organizations, photo exhibitions, etc. In 2017 it was the 4th edition of this activity, and it involved the participation of 47 organizations to develop 25 activities all day long.
This project is led by the City Council, but it’s developed with the organizations which are part of the different commissions of the Civil Rights Department:
- Gender, feminism and LGBTI
- New citizenship
- Religious diversity
- Gypsy people
- Solidarity and cooperation
From April to October, some of the organizations meet up in the Mescla’t organization commission, to elaborate the program coordinated. And on November, this commission meet again to evaluate the action and propose improvements for the next edition.
This action is highly widespread in various ways: city’s website, press announcements and releases, posters all over the streets, etc.
“Mescla’t” is also useful for the organizations to meet in a common space and to know better each other, so they start collaborations that bring up different areas together (for example, the start projects with double purpose: gender and human rights, or LGTBI and cooperation).
This action is led by the City Council, but it’s developed with 47 organizations which are part of the different commissions of the Civil Rights Department.
The impact of the action undergoes an evaluation process by the organization commission and the city council professionals.
