CCCBLab: I+C+i | International Cultural Innovation Prize

Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB), International, 2010, 2017

Integrate concepts such as research, development and innovation within the cultural sphere. Always with the desire to experiment with new formats, offer more practical sessions and to further explore topics such as science and culture, laboratories and cities, and co-creation and data visualisation.

    Collaborations with CCCB LAB, a cultural research and innovation space.

La Mandarina de Newton has collaborated with the CCCB LAB since its inception. From 2010 to 2012 we collaborated through the I+C+i programme - which, since 2007, has addressed the integration of concepts such as research, development and innovation in the field of culture, reflecting on key issues such as: Which cultural formats are in crisis? How are new audiences generated? Which issues have not yet been addressed by the cultural sphere? Should R+D departments be established in cultural institutions?

During 2010, 2011 and 2012 the I+C+I programme, a visible window of the CCCB LAB (, went a step further by experimenting with new formats, offering more practical sessions and exploring topics integrated in the programme since its creation.

We have also been present at the awards ceremony of the International Cultural Innovation Prize organised by the CCCB LAB. This is a biennial event aimed at promoting projects that explore the possible cultural scenarios of the coming years. It is established as a new space for the creation, production and dissemination of proposals for the development of imaginative solutions to the cultural challenges of the 21st century. In this case, we have provided a new perspective to help rethink, combine and communicate the presented projects through Design Thinking and Visual Thinking dynamics.


Reflect on the area of exhibition curatorship and citizen participation, include citizens in the concept of the citizen lab, and contribute to the hybridization and communication of new cultural innovation projects.
