Santa Mònica is an interdisciplinary arts centre dedicated to promoting contemporary creation. Its aim is to serve as a platform for the dissemination of contemporary creativity in Catalonia and as a space for reflection to promote debate and generate ideas about the concepts surrounding artistic creation and its relationship with the public.

In this cultural scenario, Santa Mònica aims to become a space in constant construction of new shared meanings. Inhabited by artists with multiple voices and coming from different disciplines, it assumes the new responsibility of generating frameworks of cultural action open to participation.

Santa Mònica periodically invites a group of artists from different fields to work collectively on creative projects. At the same time, several guilds, hybrid groups formed by public call, experiment with the same institutional infrastructures from their artistic practices as an additional part of the programming. In total, more than forty artists take part every four months in a process of shared construction, grouped under a theme that also takes shape collectively.

Creators activated at different levels and the citizens themselves act in connection with the centre in a network logic that provides active roles of concretion and collective decision-making. Through this exercise of institutional hierarchy, the new Santa Mònica embraces a methodology that encourages diverse formulas of horizontal participation.
