As a topography of a situation, "Terme Raval" will present a series of visual and written documents that take the evolution of the Raval as an axis on which to reflect, combining the recent past with the present, a prelude to a future that It is mutable and multi-faceted. An itinerary from the transformation document to the "kitchen" of new dynamics driven by the younger generations of the citizenship that makes up the Raval, a complex social reality, rich in nuances and expectations of the future. What are the coordinates that outline the Raval? What are the social and cultural variables that intervene in its conceptual demarcation and everyday configuration, which imprint different characteristics to those of other territories? Cinematographic productions, social theater, citizen networks, projects of specific intervention in architecture, graffiti, radio productions, documentaries ...

As reference situations, issues that affect the daily life of the social community, such as urban planning, housing, identity, use of public space, commerce, communication, information management , education, labor circumstances, cultural and religious manifestations, etc. Starting from the observation of the diverse nature of Barcelona's current citizenship, "Quórum" has been articulated based on three concepts: immigrant, citizen and neighbor.
