Solidarity Park is a project of participation.
We want you involved in creating the memorial monument to the hero’s of International brigadistas of the Ciudad de Barcelona. The reason because its our history, a story of human solidarity and the fight against fascism, which is relevant today.
This participation includes coming to learn the process and help make it. So far 500 people have been involved in the carving and we have had numerous workshops and events, especially live carving in the streets.
100’s of people have raised over €18,000 to help us complete the first phases of the project. We still need a little more to keep the participation going to the end. The local council have agreed to the final phase of the project so we hope complete the construction in 2019. Donate
We have involved young people in schools who have linked up internationally to create art and learn the history. The students will be directly involved in design aspects of the monument and helping to create it. We plan to continue this work with the schools into the future.
Artists across the world have produced images inspired by the story of the ship ciudad de Barcelona. These and the great work of the Students formed the core of the exhibition “Brigadistas Return”. Also at this show the first 30 figures of the monument were shown with a visual audio installation.
To pull all this together we opened Solidarity Park centre in Malgrat de Mar. The center exhibited the art produced in the project, show an historical exhibition and run workshop showing the process and giving access to be involved. For more information look at the links below.
