The Tallers Oberts de Barcelona are intent on making the processes and techniques used by artists in their work known to the general public. Year after year we have maintained as is customary the tradition of opening up to the city. In this 4th edition of the Tallers Oberts de Barcelona, a good portion of the city is included and almost all districts have joined. This means something; but what? It means our city gathers a good number of artists and artisans, that it fosters creativity and, spontaneously, Barcelona becomes the locus amoenus where art and artisanship unite and, in many cases, trespass their established frontiers to establish a dialogue with passers-by, as well as, with visitors. Without a doubt, this experience enlightens us all and helps us grow as a city and a nation.
