Government plan

Barcelona joins the international debate on cultural rights with a specific, pioneering plan for the city that spearheads the municipal approach to this global strategy. The plan includes a framework of ambitious political reflection and a series of innovative, functional government measures and actions that are binding. The plan aims to open the way to a formal recognition of cultural rights at an international level, based on municipalist practices and with the idea of generating discussion and fostering the appearance of similar initiatives.

Today more than ever, the City of Barcelona needs to design a cultural policy based on cultural rights, whose implementation focuses on access, cultural practices, innovation, democratic governance, the recognition of diversity, creativity, cultural production and community reinforcement with city residents and sectoral stakeholders.

The City Council will invest a total of €68.7 million on the implementation of the programme of actions planned between now and 2023.
