April is installation and public space

The Inverted Square is a project by the Québec artist Camille Rajotte located in Plaça del Diamant until the 25th of April. Between sculpture and urban furnishing this project is intended as a pause in constant motion, and invites people to stop, interrogate, sit and, above all, pay more attention to the urban environment it occupies. With a playful and intellectual attitude, this work, conceived to suit the Plaça del Diamant, allows neighbourhood and visitors to observe and live this space from a different point of view.

April is like every year, writing 

For three years Jiwar dedicates this month to a special program for writers. This year, the prolific Italian writer Tommaso Merlo, the Irish writer Anne Hayden and Korean writer Che Yeun enjoy the activities proposed by Jiwar to know the literary and creative landscape of our city. This year, on the occasion of the recent arrival in Barcelona of Georgian writer Irakli Kakabadze, hosted by the PEN Catalan and Barcelona City Council under the Writer Hailed program promoted by the ICORN Red, Jiwar also welcomes Irakli in its program dedicated to writing. This year, we repeat collaboration with escritura en vivo programming a jam writing in the garden, to celebrate Sant Jordi. We love the proposal of these friends who have made creativity a way of living, seeing and feeling
