The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) is a cultural center located in the Raval. The center focuses loosely on the theme of ‘urban tradition’ and models itself after artistic centers like the Pompidou or the Barbican, spaces which not only showcase contemporary art, but also host activities and provide educational spaces. The CCCB hosts film festivals, lectures, music and film events and several major exhibitions a year, including ‘World Press Photo’, an annual exhibition of photojournalism that stops in Barcelona each December on an international tour. The museum was opened in 1994 in the former almshouse, Casa de la Caritat, which functioned from 1802 to 1957. The CCCB has 15,000 square metres of space (4000 of which are devoted to gallery space).
