More about us

Who we are

INCA Catalunya is an independent assembly-run organisation of professionals in the fields of arts and education, who believe in art and culture as a tool for social transformation. The soul of the organisation is networking (both at local and international level), to promote the development of individuals and communities through art and culture.

What we do

INCA Catalunya runs educational training projects, development cooperation and international mobility projects; organises festivals and artistic meetings; produces shows and artistic events.

Why we do it

How we do it

INCA Catalunya works with theatre tools (physical theatre, social theatre, invisible theatre, performance), animation, clown, circus, dance, music, science education and audiovisual techniques. The methodological approach of the activities is based on the principles of Non-Formal Education and popular education.

Where we do it

INCA Catalunya has a clear international vocation to networking, to encourage the mobility of people, ideas and artistic products. Locally INCA Catalunya is active in the Raval district of Barcelona and in the community of Llinars del Vallès.

Whit whom we do it

INCA Catalunya works on one hand with young people and adults at risk of social exclusion for social, geographical or political reasons, and on the other hand with artists and trainers who want to enrich their competences, with the general objective of developing new strategies of social inclusion and intervention.

Our Work

The dissemination of art and culture passes through education and lifelong learning, slowly and deeply. In the artistic and cultural sector everybody has to make an effort to improve society: artists, institutions, patrons, public. We must find the quality of the relationship between artistic product and spectator. Art and culture are underestimated in their ability to provide benefits: tourism, schools, training centres, as well as the quality of life and the human relationships would be greatly enhanced with joint policies aimed at promoting the artistic sector.
