SPORT CULTURA BARCELONA
Without any doubt, we are living a few months that none of us would ever have thought to live. Suddenly, our life and our day to day, have been altered by the action of Covid-19. I wish with all my heart that this virus has affected you as little as possible, and your closest environment.
After this serious crisis, the cultural and sports institutions of our country will need interlocutors to bring them together and to lead the conversations with the public administrations, mainly the Generalitat and the Barcelona City Council. For this reason I am convinced that from Sport Cultura Barcelona we have the capacity to carry out this function.
As you well know, Sport Cultura Barcelona was born to promote dialogue and understanding between institutions, citizens and relevant agents and strengthen the pillars on which our society has to be built.
If you consider it appropriate for Sport Cultura Barcelona to lead these dialogues with the institutions, I will be grateful for your support. Thus, we can hold a meeting, for the moment virtual, with you or with one of the people on your team, to start this process that, from my point of view, is crucial for the future of many cultural and sports institutions in our country. In this way, we can expedite any type of resolution with the Administration as much as possible.
The situation is complex, but it can be a very good opportunity to stand out. That is why I believe that Barcelona, a city of reference in many aspects, can reinforce and broaden its perception as a city of sport and culture throughout the world to achieve new achievements.
As our associative philosophy states, Sport and culture make us better as people and better people build better societies.
Thank you very much for your attention.
