The TRACTION project will carry out three trials in inner-city Barcelona, a youth prison in Leiria (Portugal) and diverse communities across Ireland, as experimental activities to test and share new ideas through an opera co-creation:

Opera co-creation with young inmates in Leira

Co-creating opera with diverse communities


Raval is a culturally diverse neighbourhood that brings together different nationalities and cultures. TRACTION aims to promote social inclusion of migrants through co-design and co-creation of a new opera piece between professionals in LICEU and neighbours of Raval.


A prison for young inmates, EPL-J, has been chosen with the objective of lowering the rate of criminal recidivism among young inmates by engaging them in an opera co-creation process.


Use new technology and novel audio-visual formats to create a new digital community opera.
