Exploratory Study from «La Volta» project

by GtR Cultural

The following project suggests a series of actions to perform the extension of La Volta project and the socio-urban revitalization of the district of Sant Narcís energizing and strengthening the local participation and diversity according to the Exploratory Study of The Spur project.

The first action contemplates the opening of new spaces to be included in the project. We can anticipate that a premise susceptible to be opened as a store/workshop has been found in the central square of this area following the model already established from the premises of La Volta.

The Study evaluates the opening of a larger venue as an entrepreneurship and small format exhibition centre of the ICC in Girona and counties. This centre should bring together professionals from the sector of arts and suggest a series of activities related to these professionals and to the general public in order to publicize the sector and attract new audiences. One of these premises should be visible and in strategic situation to catalyse flows of people from the centre of the city towards Plaça de l’Assumpció, the centre of the project.

The dynamics coordination that are suggested for these new spaces are directly related to the involvement of users with local participation, new management modes are mentioned taking into account the commitment of users with their environment or linking people from other involved agents and their ideas have been included in the specific proposals, as reflected in the study, in many cases would be willing to participate with the project.

Finally the Study proposes an action to enhance visibility that includes interventions in the space in places with a lot of visibility, helping to channel the flows of people from the centre of the city to Sant Narcís district, Plaça de l’Assumpció.
