On Thursday 22 March, which is also World Water Day, at 7 p.m., La Llagosta will play host to an event organised to inaugurate the Viu la riera! exhibit, a travelling exhibition that will pass through the four towns that have taken part in the project aimed at enhancing the Caldes Stream. The project began in 2016 and, since then, has been promoted by the UIC Barcelona School of Architecture’s Research Group in the Regeneration of Intermediate Landscapes (RIL), alongside researchers from the University of Girona’s Institute of the Environment.
The exhibition provides a graphic summary of the various stages of the project and the main results of the citizen involvement process organised with a view to improving the Caldes Stream. It therefore revolves around a selection of photographs and audiovisual material compiled during the participation process (interviews, workshops, outings, talks, etc.), with the aim of sparking increased interest among local residents and the public in general in this riparian landscape. Early on, the Caldes Stream restoration process led to the creation of a network of citizens committed to protecting, promoting and rehabilitating the Caldes Stream.
The initiative has also received support from the four town councils and other supramunicipal entities, such as the Besòs-Tordera Consortium, Provincial Council of Barcelona, Catalan Water Agency and Association of Caldes Stream Municipalities The travelling Viu la riera! exhibition will start in the town of La Llagosta and, from there, move its way up the stream until it reaches Caldes de Montbui, with stops in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda and Palau-Solità i Plegamans. The proposed programme is as follows:
- 22 March to 26 April, in La Llagosta (Centre Cultural i Juvenil Can Pelegrí)
- 27 April to 7 June, in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda (Centre Cívic El Vapor)
- 8 June to 19 July, in Palau-solità i Plegamans (Casa de Cultura Masia de Can Cortès)
- 20 July to 7 September, in Caldes de Montbui (Library)
