Rap for remembrance

Highschool workshop
  • The EUROM joins efforts with the School of Art La Industrial of Barcelona and the project Versembrant in a pilot educational activity to raise awareness of Europe’s recent past through rap music;
  • The activity is coordinated by the historians Cayetana Gomis Fletcher, teacher of History and Sciences of the Contemporary World at La Industrial, and David González, project manager at the EUROM and a professor at the Faculties of Education (University of Barcelona) and Tourism (University of Girona);
  • The popular traveling school Versembrant will carry out the workshops with three groups of students from November 25 to December 18.


Versembrant is a traveling popular school, a project that aims to raise the critical awareness of young people, through urban art and hip hop. They develop workshops of rap, artistic production, and visual arts on racism, xenophobia, sexism, and now also on memories, aspiring to put aesthetics at the service of criticism.

La Industrial School of Art is a municipal public center located in the heart of Barcelona’s Eixample (within the premises of the Industrial School) where visual arts and design studies are carried out. Its main objective is to train in theoretical and practical knowledge, fostering the creative and conceptual capacity of students, as well as providing them with the essential tools to develop a future professional task. Learning takes place in specialized workshops and classrooms with the presence of experienced teachers. The School is open to the environment and is in contact both with the movements and artistic events of the moment, as well as with the current professional sector that is linked to it.
This activity counts with the support of the City Council of Barcelona and is co-funded by Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union.
