Access to culture and participation in cultural life is a right enshrined in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Understood as a democratising practice, culture is becoming a space for transformation capable of generating new present and future ways of being in the world and interpreting it. More peaceful, egalitarian and sustainable ways of building a new future from city residents.
Terrassa has always focused public policies on ensuring citizens’ cultural rights. It is in this context that Cultura al territori is being launched as a programme for democratising and decentralising culture in the municipality. The project provides support for the culture and creativity sectors for their application in the area, placing an emphasis on the importance of participation, mainstreaming, production and access, and creating new centres in the city of Terrassa. The programme is being implemented through several support initiatives and projects that are being designed, launched and assessed collaboratively between the institution and local cultural agents.
