It is the Museum Week this week! The time when the museums, galleries and cultural institutions from all over the world celebrate culture on Twitter by posting and curating engaging content each day using different hashtags. This year there is more than 800 museum from 29 countries participating and taking #MuseumWeek to another level. Fingers crossed that soon it will be a truly global event.
I really wish this exciting initiative was around when I was studying Arts Management. I am sure that Museums and Heritage Sector module I took, would benefit from that social media dimension.
Today is all about inspiration so I thought it might be a good idea to share two of my biggest inspirations in Barcelona from that cultural field, the art museums in Raval.
The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
Good vibes and vegetarian delights
Somebody mentioned a healthy and very delicious lunch? I am in! Raval? Perfect! It is close to work, especially if I cycle there, not far from home to drop by on the weekend. It is also a very cool neighbourhood of Barcelona so let me share with you some names of great vegetarian restaurants in Raval.
My colleagues introduced me to this fantastic restaurant and I fell for its warm, lively and very welcoming vibe immediately. The three course menu option is generous and the concept together with prices is clearly explained in Catalan, Spanish and English. Unless you decide to go for a soup, a salad bar at the back of the restaurant is a place where you pick your starter. There are some filling options like tasty lentils, spicy potato, brown rice or pasta available and it is self-service so do not worry if you are hungry.
