Metro and buses as venues for major cultural events.
Commitment on promoting culture
TMB Cultura is the company's commitment to promoting the cultural events of Barcelona and the metropolitan area, enriching the travel experience on public transport.
Several institutions have set up collaborations with TMB and have chosen our facilities as venues for different kinds of productions. Music, theatre, cinema, dancing, poetry, literature, magic, exhibitions on different themes and even the circus are all welcome in our metro and bus network.
TMB's installations will be the setting for several cultural productions, such as the Maria Canals Competition, which involves its programme with pianos in public spaces to use for free, the Metropolitan Dance Fortnight, or the Swab contemporary art exhibition, which under the name of Swab Stairs has organised for several years a metro decoration competition among design students.
As for the performing arts and music, TMB has opened its facilities to city festivals and large events, and will be offering a sample of this year's edition. Events such as Sónar, Primavera Sound or the GREC festival will take place.
Other institutions such as the Liceu, the Institut del Teatre or the Mercat de les Flors have taken their performances to TMB to celebrate different world days and other important dates such as the International Opera Day, the International Dance Day or the International Theatre Day.
Metro corridors will also host exhibitions and cultural activities of different kinds. TMB has recently collaborated with exhibitions at the Miró Foundation, Casa Àsia, the Pompeu Fabra University and the Barcelona Jazz Festival, among others.
TMB Cultura also has three consolidated projects on the cultural scene in Barcelona: the short film Subtravelling Festival (CA) exhibition, the Online Short Story Competition (CA) and the Musicians on the Metro project.
