After 90 years as a tobacco factory, Tabakalera reopened its doors in 2015 as an International Centre for Contemporary Culture. It now houses a variety of projects and cultural institutions. And all of them share one mission: to help develop the artistic and critical capacity of the society through creative and participative leisure activities.

The polyphonic nature of the centre fosters a highly diverse cultural offering that has something for all. Everyone is invited to create, explore, experience, cross inter-disciplinary borders, try out new things, and to collaborate, participate and become part of creative communities and diverse projects. 

Tabakalera’s main areas of influence are film and audiovisual art, contemporary art and the creative and cultural industries, particularly design and creative gastronomy. The centre also hosts activities linked to music, fashion, performing arts and others.

Tabakalera exists primarily to provide the impetus for creative processes. The centre provides support and resources to artists working across diverse disciplines. Tabakalera is also a laboratory for cross-fertilisation of ideas and projects. It builds bridges between artists and industry which help develop the cultural system.
