Expat Day – I’m Barcelonian

Expat Day – I’m Barcelonian, is an event organised by Barcelona City Council and Barcelona Activa. The aim of Expat Day is to help foreigners in Barcelona to settle in, by providing information on all the public and private services that are available to them.

From the Expat Day website:

In Barcelona we are very proud to receive every year hundreds of persons who come to live, to work and to enjoy our people, our companies, our culture and our way of life.

Exhibitions, talks, workshops and family activities are just some of the things you’ll find on the day. These will be in Spanish and English. You can go with family or friends, anyone who would like to know a little bit more about living in Barcelona.

“Catalonia Is Not Spain” Crowdfunding Project

Catalonia Is Not Spain

Crowdfunding is where a project raises money from a number of contributors via an enabling platform such as Kickstarter. It has been a source of capital for many products and ventures where other funding opportunities weren’t available, or as straightforward. The contributor is supporting someone’s idea before it has actually come to market. In return they may get the product at a discount, or some other reward. Incredibly this industry has grown to be worth over $5 billion globally.

Barcelona is a hotbed of startups, venture capitalists and crowdfunded ideas. We have written previously about the crowdfunded art exhibition, Las Calles Hablan.

Upload yours to see it appear on this page too if your photos are public. Read the rest of this article…
