Accessibility

The Fundació works to disseminate contemporary art and thought through the organisation of exhibitions and various cultural proposals with a pluralist approach. Our aim is for everyone to be able to find an area of ​​interest and feel part of the project. For this reason, the Fundació wants to help ensure that all people, whatever their living conditions or circumstances, have access to our cultural programme, which includes adaptations for people with special mobility or learning needs. Similarly, we offer free admission to the Museum so that no one in a vulnerable situation or at risk of social exclusion is denied access to culture for economic reasons.
