AN ISLAND IN THE CITY
Metàfora art therapy school is located in an old industrial factory in the Sants neighborhood of Barcelona. It is an oasis of creativity in the middle of the city. An evocative space with patios overflowing with plants and various shade houses (including a pond with a turtle!) alternate with studios and artistic creation workshops.
Metàfora is a place in the world and at the same time one or multiple metaphors. In the words of our students: “A place where you can just be, a place of transition, a place of rediscovering creativity… also a centrifuge, a rollercoaster, a jungle, and a sea…” Without a doubt, it is an experience to be had and enjoyed.
Metàfora isn’t just classrooms and courses, before anything it is the people that make Metàfora what it is, a rich, multicultural community of teachers and students from all over the world. A crossroads in which artists, psychologists, anthropologists, doctors, teachers, historians, therapists, and more, converge.
