It carries out its programming in the following areas: Language and Universities, Literature, Performing and Visual Arts, and the Programme for Innovation, Knowledge and Residencies.
The Institut Ramon Llull aims to put Catalan culture in dialogue with the world in all areas of creation and knowledge, constructing networks for mutual understanding, recognition and collaboration.
