Xarxaprod - Network of spaces for production and creation in Catalonia – is an association that gathers public and private centres for contemporary cultural production and creation.
Created in 2006, the main objective of Xarxaprod is to share and optimize resources with the aim of enriching the production frameworks available to creators, and reinforcing their relationship to society.
Xarxaprod's specific objectives are the following:
- strengthen the position and visibility of centres of creation and cultural production across the region,
- promote communication and exchange of experiences between the associated spaces,
- ensure good practices within the centres for creation and production.
The 26 members of Xarxaprod are entities, projects and platforms that offer spaces, resources (technicians and management), means (residencies, grants, awards and publications) as well as support (training, contact with other entities, diffusion and presentations) within the processes of production and creation. All these resources benefit also the general public. Within Xarxaprod, there are also private members, who are individuals with expert knowledge of the scene and a career within the sector.
In collaboration with the Catalan administration, Xarxaprod collected and gathered most of the art spaces in Catalonia in 2016. You can find the result of this research in the database https://espaisdecreacio.cat/
