Open Cultural Center offers a wide range of free language classes for members of our organisation. While for instance the Spanish and Catalan classes are given by locals, many of the other classes are given by refugees or migrants who have arrived in Barcelona.

VIDEO: In Cherso there has been a refugee camp since February 2016, which has managed to shelter over 2,000 refugees. This camp lacked a school and the organization of cultural activities, so towards the beginning of June we decided to start a cultural center project in the camp in collaboration with the organization of Inter European Human Aid Organization (IHA).
VIDEO: “I think photography is a powerful way to explain the world about our life”, said one of the displaced people. As we know, photography is not the easiest but also the most effective way to deliver the message. This is the main reason why we held a photography workshop for the refugees in our camp. Hopefully, the message will make understanding between European people and displaced people.
