¡The Espai Poetic must not be shut down!

Barcelona’s City Council has put one of the most established poetry venues between a rock and a hard place; help us to write our ending.

Hello! We are the Espai POE(tic), a cultural association created in 2017 in the Gràcia neighbourhood of Barcelona. Our name is a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe and we are dedicated to promoting interconnectivity between artists and local culture.

We are a creative community, an open, diverse, interactive and reactive hub. Our space is therefore filled with poetic, literary and theatrical events, workshops and much more. We have activities and shows every day of the week, because we enjoy what we do.

At present we are one of the most established poetry venues in Barcelona and also one of the few with such an extensive program. Over the years our name has become known among poets from the rest of Spain who occasionally drop by our stage. We have welcomed poets and authors from Barcelona such as Dani Orviz, Salva Soler, Raúl Parra, Al Bareto, Joan Camps, Iñaki C.Nazabal, Ainara García, Elisa Lein, Carrie Punto, Olza Olzeta, Pablowski, Crisal Rodríguez, Domenikus, Julián Sanchez Caramazana, Andrés Dos Leyes, Marta B, Arizonica, Danilo Facelli, Arjan Alvarez, Ale Oseguera, Mad Pirvan, Erika Rubio, Sophie Glú, Laura Freijó, Mabel Escribano, Quin Valiente and Eli Sanz among others, and poets from the rest of Spain including Suso Sudón, Pablo Benavente, Pablo López, Daniel Gómez, Sergio Escribano, Carlos Salem and Leo Zelad.

Our viability as a project is currently in serious danger due to a notification of requirements stipulated by Barcelona City Council that threaten our imminent closure. This puts all our dreams and work on a tightrope. After struggling to exist and share local culture with minimal support, our government have turned their backs on small associations and emerging artists who are being left without venues.

The City Council has given us a month to meet its requirements, so we cannot waste a minute. We have to raise €20,000 to adapt the venue to conform with another type of license, so that it is not the politicians who write our ending. We need your collaboration to achieve this. Poetix, onwards!

About the rewards

We cannot allow the closure of this venue. Whether you are a regular or you just want to help us out, whether you are from Barcelona or from anywhere else, we are offering rewards to suit all tastes and pockets. You can review them here on the right. Remember, your contribution will only be effective if the campaign reaches its goal. In other words, if we do not reach €15,000, your money will stay where it is.

What is the money for?

Part of the cost will be covered by the association, as well as the anticipated membership payments collected for 2020 and special events such as the Poemaraton. Our final target for this crowdfunding is €15,000 to:
Silence air conditioning gap: 1000€
Soundproof two drainpipes: 1000€
Install a plasterboard door in the downstairs room: 1200€
Buy and install a sound limiter: 2628,12€
Annual inspection of sound limiter: 450€
ECA inspection and sound measurement: 2500€
Licensing project: 2000€
Taxes: 500€
Electrical installation project: 1000€
Electrical installation work: 2000€
Electrical installation legalization: 1000€
Lower floor of downstairs room: 2000€
Install plasterboard and door bar area: 2000€
Rewards and unexpected costs: 721,89€

In the case of surpassing our target the rest will go towards improvements that are necessary but not essential for obtaining the licence, such as to:
Buy and install 2 LED spotlights in the downstairs room
Buy and install sound system for downstairs room
Reinforce soundproofing
Change doors on toilets
Install toilets in upstairs room
Install sound system in upstairs room

Calendar

The venue will remain fully operational as long as this is permitted. The crowdfunding campaign on the Verkami platform will be launched at the beginning of June and the #Poemaraton will be held in parallel on the 6th July. You can find out more about the events on our website and social networks. If we obtaining financing, our intention is to carry out the works as soon as possible in order to return to normal. The reopening of the premises is estimated for October, together with the distribution of the rewards.
