What are they?

The Social Contact Workshops are a handful of free activities, opened to neighbourhood, which are offered from some Civic Centers in Barcelona and all other towns where ActivaMent works. They’re workshops and artistic/expressive activities, whose purpose is helping to acquire a new apprenticeship, sharing with other people, develop creativity, express one’s emotions and/or improve our health. They have been conceived as personal growing tools, and also to promote social inclusion and to change preconceptions and remove discrimination for mental health reasons.

It’s not necessary to have been diagnosed to join any of our workshops, neither belonging to ActivaMent. Promotion of horizontal interplay, developing an equal role, is, actually, a distinctive character of these activities, which make possible to all participants to carry out a cooperative action with a common objective. Apprenticeships offered by these workshops are useful for all people, with or without a mental disorder diagnose.


Currently, 15 workshops are being held in 6 territories. You can find more information about each of them by clicking on it:
