EINA a les 8

EINA at 8 is an initiative of EINA, University Center of Art and Design, in order to promote a series of events that address issues related to Human Studies, social and political, in a dynamic and open format –such as concerts, lectures, film sessions, conferences and debates- capable of stimulating students, teachers and curious friends, to take part in activities that want mutual exchange and active participation in the intellectual life of the city of Barcelona.

It is a commitment that we accept willingly, to publicize our institution’s capacity to generate critical knowledge, opinion and trend. It will be an excellent opportunity to extend to our friends, acquaintances and newcomers our speculative needs and our commitment so that EINA acts as an agent of relationship, correspondence and exchange of knowledge.

EINA at 8 will take place at our premises, following a seasonal programming throughout the academic year, always at eight o’clock in the evening.

We hope that this proposal is to you, as encouraging as it is to us!
