In this encounter we are in the presence of an entrepreneur from Barcelona who is multifaceted, curious, restless, erudite and passionate. Marçal Gifra is a successful businessman, advisor to various international institutions, consultant and researcher of social trends, speaker and university lecturer. Obsessed with thinking of other possible worlds beyond our own, he seeks to bring space to planet Earth. In unconventional ways, Gifra challenges the horizon of the imaginable and predictable, as he fervently seeks to uncover those little things that can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

The participants will travel hand in hand with the forecasts that Gifra presents through a series of data, statistics and projections of the future, meeting the challenge of seeing that future in a context of catastrophes and global crises.

I’d really like to think that the artist could be just another kind of material in the picture, working in collaboration with all the other materials.
