The Canòdrom gets going

The venue is starting up its activity as a cultural digital products incubator and will run programmes for employment, training and public participation.

Next Saturday, the Canòdrom Creative Research Park opens its doors in the Sant Andreu district with the aim of becoming a leading venue for digital culture in the city. The Canòdrom will be an incubator for projects at the service of cultural entrepreneurs and seeks to contribute to turning creative ideas into entrepreneurial projects.

The aim of the Canòdrom will be to enable technological updating and the digitalisation of the creative industries, connecting creative talent, entrepreneurship and sources of financing. At present, there are eleven resident projects at the Creative Research Park.

As well as working as an incubator, the Canòdrom will also offer programmes in vocational training, business creation support and digital literacy in collaboration with Barcelona Activa. 

To celebrate the start-up of this new facility, Saturday 12 March, from 11 am to 2 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm, will be an open-doors day, with guided tours and demonstrations of resident projects. From 11 am until 2 pm, a get-together will be held on Plaça del Canòdrom, in front of the building, with children's games and hot chocolate for everyone.

The Canòdrom building was built in 1962 by Antoni Bonet and Josep Puig and is a key work of modern Catalan architecture, listed as Architectural Heritage of Barcelona.

At present, the venue features 1,000 m2 of terrace and 1,300 m2 of constructed surface, with stable work spaces, meeting rooms, a multi-purpose hall for staging events and various co-working spaces.
