Sowing culture, reaping progress


INTERARTS is a private agency with international projection that:

  • contributes to human development through culture,
  • supports the design of cultural policies,
  • promotes knowledge and information in the field of culture,
  • advocates for the role of culture in public governance
  • networks at European and international levels


INTERARTS was founded in 1995.

From its headquarters in Barcelona, INTERARTS carries out its international activity through and with an extensive network of partner organizations and professionals. We have offices in Lima, Peru and Pristina, Kosovo.

INTERARTS operates in full and open competition systems. We design proposals that we submit to calls for proposals or tenders, by both public and private entities. INTERARTS does not receive operating support from either private or public funds. We are not-for-profit and define ourselves, equally, as a non-governmental organization and/or a civil society organization.


INTERARTS deploys its work in the following activity areas:

Development cooperation

INTERARTS designs and implements international development cooperation projects with a cultural dimension. We believe that culture is both a driver and enabler of human sustainable development.


INTERARTS provides consultancy services, for both private and public entities. It puts at the disposal of public and private operators the knowledge acquired in its different activity areas.

Knowledge transfer

INTERARTS develops training and information activities, including seminars and conferences. Through our trainee program we host students from a number of international higher education centers. Through our webs and social media channels we provide continuous information on our activities and on topics relevant for the cultural sector.

Applied research

INTERARTS defines itself as a laboratory of ideas and center of applied research. We focus on emergent issues of relevance for the cultural sector and for cultural policies.

Networking & Advocacy

INTERARTS has always been active in European cultural networks. We consider that networking strengthens our organization and enables us to take part in on-going debates on issues of crucial interests for the cultural sector, advocating for a major role of culture in European governance.
