COVID-19. Security measures to access L’Auditori de Barcelona. MORE INFO

Via its Apropa Cultura social programme, L’Auditori de Barcelona allocates 2% of its regular ‎concert programme seating capacity each season to social organisations working with ‎vulnerable groups, including disabled people and those at risk of social exclusion, at a special ‎rate of €3 per person.‎

Created by L’Auditori de Barcelona in 2006, Apropa Cultura currently makes over 120 cultural ‎facilities all over Catalonia accessible to people assisted by social organisations. In addition to ‎the concerts at L’Auditori de Barcelona, the programme also allows beneficiaries to enjoy ‎shows, visits, workshops and other activities in theatres and auditoriums, festivals, museums ‎and sites of special interest, while the Educa amb l’Art initiative provides art education for social ‎educators and training in accessibility and diversity for cultural advisers. ‎

If you know of any cultural organisations that would benefit from the Apropa Cultura ‎programme, you can find full details here. ‎

In addition to the concerts, L’Auditori Apropa offers two activities aimed at groups who may ‎have difficulty attending concerts with the general public. ‎

An orchestral morning is a workshop aimed at organisations that work ‎with people living with ‎Alzheimer’s and groups with learning disabilities, autistic ‎spectrum disorder or mental disorders. ‎

Since 2018, L’Auditori Apropa has been organising La Banda ens Apropa ‎with the Barcelona Symphony Band, a cycle of concerts on weekday ‎mornings specially designed for an adult audience who may not be able to enjoy concerts at ‎the normal times. With a view to ensuring the welfare of groups of every kind, the rules ‎regarding noise and movement in the concert hall are less strict and there may be small ‎adjustments to lighting, sound, etc. These sessions reduce anxiety levels and provide a ‎better concert experience for those living with Alzheimer’s disease, autism, cognitive ‎impairment, etc.
