Barcelona workshop will teach how to create community clubs
A new project called ‘What makes a club ‘ will teach how to create community clubs in an upcoming workshop in Barcelona. It will take place from November 8 to 12 and will be hosted by Temporary pleasure and the non-profit association Futch Club.
After a difficult year, Barcelona clubs were allowed to reopen earlier this month and with it new ideas spinning club concepts have surfaced – this is the case with “What Makes A Club”. The 5-day program will consist of a week-long workshop and DIY dance floor in Barcelona, offering lectures, design labs and a seminar on how to prototype community and oriented clubs. This whole project strives to emphasize the importance and relevance of communities to reinvent and create what they call “new generation nightclubs”.
The whole program costs a total of 80 € and you can apply and reserve your place until Sunday 24 October. The organization made sure to reserve places for people with financial needs. For more information, see the Temporary pleasure website or follow event social media here.
TEMPORARY PLEASURE GIFTS: WHAT MAKES A CLUB? A WEEKLY WORKSHOP AND A DIY DANCE FLOOR. BARCELONA 8-12 NOVEMBER [@futchclub + SECRET LOCATION]
Join us for five days of conferences, design labs and a construction workshop allowing local stages to co-create community club spaces.
We’ve spent the last decade looking at clubs inside and out and believe brick and mortar clubs are broken: too rigid, top to bottom – and disappearing. To preserve the right to dance in community, we must reinvent clubs – replacing rigid clubs, barriers to entry and wasted spaces – with fluid clubs, co-creation and new beginnings.
We believe that real collaboration and inclusion enhances the music, dance floors, and community development opportunities beyond the club. In alliance with @futchclub we aim to amplify local energies, marginalized voices and often blocked identities.
Together, in just one week, we’ll build a prototype club and platform event space that wouldn’t otherwise exist.
