About this project

More than a cultural space
Infrastructure Minimum Optimum
Plumbing and drainage
With this money we will build the necessary installations for 3 toilets, two for the audience and one for the crew and performers. This involves installing the pipes that will supply hot and cold sanitary water to our bathrooms. It will also be necessary to repair and modify the drain pipes on the roof.
€ 3.500
Soundproofing
As you can imagine, a venue of this nature requires good soundproofing of the whole space: theatre, shop and café. Creating acoustic insulation within the walls is essential to improve the sound quality inside the premises and also to avoid noise pollution outside the premises. We are responsible and we will be good neighbours to all the residents of our neighbourhood.

General information

It is undoubtedly true that culture is a great tool for social transformation. Therefore, for many years we have dreamed of a space for collective and creative construction, a space that promotes participation and sharing between different artistic and cultural disciplines from an Afrocentric and Afrofeminist point of view.

Cooperativa Periferia Cimarronas have found a building, located in Sants neighborhood in Barcelona, that has the potential to turn our dream into reality. We are now committed to transforming the building into a living cultural centre; a place of discovery, recognition, participation, a place where knowledge and skills can be exchanged, a place that promotes social empowerment and culture sharing, based on founding principles of self-empowerement, mutual support and the fight against all kinds of discrimination.

We are very excited about launching this campaign and bringing together like minded individuals to collaborate on building our dream; our unique place that will belong to each and every one of us.

Let's think from the outer limits, let's take action.

MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign

In the premises of the Periferia Cimarronas Cooperative, located in the Barcelona neighbourhood of Sants, you will find:

  • A theatre
  • A shop
  • An art gallery
  • An afro-friendly café

There will also be a cinema, live music, workshops, talks and whatever we can dream up together.

Our objectives are aimed directly at Afro-descendant, African, black, racialised, migrant and refugee communities, and will have impact in the general population:

  • Visibilize the cultural creations of emerging and experienced artists who throughout history have belonged to discriminated groups.
  • Promote the knowledge and learnings of under-represented communities from a critical perspective of gender and interculturality.
  • Create a meeting space focused on social, political, cultural and economic participation.
  • Empower and enable Afro-descendant communities by contributing to the visibility and creation of positive references.

Why this is important

Born from the organic reflections and synergies that have arisen from a rich and diverse community of Afro-descendant people, the Periferia Cimarronas project will work with local, emerging or experienced artists in the city of Barcelona.

This project requires participation and contributions from all citizens, from all walks of life. During its lifetime the project will generate continuous opportunities for interaction between the general public and the creative forces behind the project, these interactions will be the manifestation of a pioneering cultural reality in Catalonia, Spain and Europe.

How will we distribute your contributions to our project?

For every 100€ raised in GOTEO:

  • 35€ will be dedicate to the manufacture of the prizes.
  • The remaining €65 will be used to cover the costs of the work that will turn our premises into a multipurpose space for cultural creation and social participation, and to pay the socially disadvantaged people who will make the prizes.
