#3 – Barcelona
from 17th to 20th April 2020
Not just an exhibition.
It is the biggest international gathering of contemporary calligraphy (or Calligraffiti). This time in Barcelona!
A moment for action and a space for creativity.
A total immersion into the fascinating world of strokes and impossible shapes,
a place to share or discover knowledge but most of all to show love and respect for letters.
Beginners, amateurs or experts… all welcome.

We couldn’t miss Barcelona on our way through the artistic capitals of Europe. It has always been a reference for design, recognised by its beauty, its architecture and artistic movements from older times…
It’s time to revive again the free and cultural city that is Barcelona!
We’ll gather that time in Barcelona, to show our art, exchange knowledge or ideas and work together on a collective exhibition and few mural calligraphy interventions around the city. We are counting on more than 20 national and international artists.
The project is also focused on promoting this artistic movement. Bringing the people closer to the different calligraphy styles by participating in the process. It’s a meeting to study and discuss the new concepts with other professionals, coming from other cultures, languages and expertising status. Opening many possible ways for an international development of the art of calligraphy.
