A WALK AROUND BORN CENTRE CULTURAL

02-04-2017

On Sunday 2 April, BCitizeN organised a get together at the Born Centre Cultural, aimed mainly at foreign residents in Barcelona who are interested in finding out about the city’s history. After archaeological remains from the XVIII century were found under the old Born market, it has now been converted in the largest excavation in the city, accessible by the public. At this cultural centre, we find the explanation of a crucial historic episode for the Catalan people and the key factors influencing the political and social situation of present day Catalonia.


ABOUT US

BCitizeN is a non-profit and non-partisan association, made up mostly of foreigners living in Barcelona, who share democratic values and defense of freedom, whatever their origins or political views.

Quan vaig venir aquí - al setembre d’enguany faran 25 anys - sabia molt poc el castellà i no tenia ni idea que era el català. Sempre m’han agradat els idiomes, m’encanta estudiar llengües i hi tinc facilitat. Així que quan m’explicaven que aquí es parlava el català, de seguida em vaig apuntar a un curs. M’interessava per l’idioma, la gent, la cultura i la història. Voler integrar-me i formar part de la societat em semblava el més normal del món. Aviat coneixia gent d’aquí, feia amistats, cosa per la qual em sentia encara més a gust i integrada a Catalunya. Sóc alemanya i sempre ho seré, però aquí a Barcelona havia trobat el que jo anomeno casa meva. Sempre volia estar al dia del que passava aquí i no estranya llavors que en algun moment decidís de participar activament en la vida social, cultural, política de Barcelona i/o Catalunya. La foto meva és del dia que vaig arribar aqui, el dia de la Mercè, el 24 de setembre de 1992.
