General information

"El casc" is a festival that intends to reactivate social and urban textures, establishing a small testing field dedicated to the study of the urban, social, cultural and technological problems and potentials.

The festival will consist on developing a series of workshops, conferences and activities for 10 hours during the summer, within a playful atmosphere which will encourage learning and the creativity of participants.

The workshops will consist on making small architectonic presentations and artistic, sociocultural or technological interventions at a low cost that can be established in the future as an example for urban regeneration and social reactivation. 

The objective of the analysis is to give value to the characteristics of historic-cultural heritage, the intensification of its potential and its recuperation as a backbone element for local development.
