Obrera Centro is a space that seeks to generate and disseminate cultural projects from the meeting, presentation and feedback of production processes. With the conviction that it is in the instance of encounter between different disciplines where there is the most fertile creative dialogue, our search is to interweave visual arts, music, design, theater, education, cinema and gastronomy, looking for the edges between these disciplines to be diluted , and give way to renovating and constructive experiences. Obrera Centro has dedicated itself to building a community of friends, in which they are the ones who fill the project with content and proposals. Obrera Centro works as a hostel for projects, among them are: the Herrateca, the just tool, mantra, artists' assembly, slow-dance, open rehearsal, cocktail parties, ping pong tournaments, project lodge, among others.
