Sala d’Art Jove is a Government of Catalonia facility which runs a series of experimental processes intended to interrelate artistic practices, work with young people, art education and cultural production. It is also based on a networking model which enables joint projects with a range of cultural and educational organisations and institutions.
Every year an average of 20 projects are produced in the areas of artistic creation, research, education, publishing and intervention in specific contexts. The desire is to place practices of care and listening at the center of any intervention, value the research processes of the selected proposals, as well as incorporate pedagogies and counter-hegemonic learning that open up space for other ways of doing and being in the world.
The management team is integrated by the research and curatorial group pli-é collective (Eva Paià, Marina Ribot Pallicer and Angelica Tognetti) and Marta Vilardell, cultural officer at the Directorate of Youth.
