Tallers Oberts Poblenou
By Aimee Lawrence
Rolling into the second week of its annual Festa Major, the Poblenou barrio makes a grab for more eyes and ears this weekend with the Tallers Oberts (“open workshops”) festival, which will see artistic spaces within the bustling neighborhood open up to the public for an intriguing insight behind closed doors. More than twenty centers across Poblenou are signed up to host open activities, from workshops and exhibitions to presentations of works, live music, DJs, screenings and guided tours.
Program highlights include a mosaic workshop at Txtarte; circus school workshop at LaBonita to test your limits with trapeze, silks and more, before an aerial show later in the evening; silk painting workshop with Carlota Boada; children’s workshop of creative writing and oral poetry; creative collage workshop; and you’ve got DJs bringing the house down at spots Lo Rap Penat and Produkt Buro.
