A rising project of community, cooperation and transformation
Welcome to VIDALIA project.
We are creating an INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY at the old textile mill of Cal Vidal (Puig-reig, Barcelona), through an Integral Cooperative and the signed contract of Masoveria Urbana for 75 years.
The housing cooperative manages the right-of-use for the 110 houses, through individual work-for-rent contracts.
The consumer coop manages the agricultural land. In the future will manage the production and sale of food through its own project of organic farming and the supply of local producers.
The Working Cooperative
The working coop will manage the more than 10,000 m2 of factory spaces in order to develop community work projects and promote the self-employment and to contribute to the socioeconomic dynamism of the area.
Since august 2019 we are living in Vidalia.
One way to get to know the project and contribute is coming to the open working days.
Once we know each other we are open to receive visits that can team up and get involve with the project.
You might have objects that you dob’t use and can be very helpul for Vidalia
- All kind of tools
- Plates, cutlery, blankets
Following the sanitary advice we are not celebrating open activities, jams, concerts… until next announcements.
Next open working day
Next presentation of the projecte
The Open Work Days are an opportunity to support the Vidalia project and get a little closer. It’s a time to get to know the community and see how the project is evolving. We start with presentations, warm-up, some games…
Afterwarsd we distribute in teams with different tasks. Special needs and abilities of each one are taken into account. Children are welcome.
For the smooth running of the day we ask you to arrive on time.
We have lunch together. We ask that everyone bring some dishes to share.
After lunch (around 3pm) we present the project, answer questions and make a route to visit some spaces. The explanation of the project is open to everyone, whether or not they participated in the working day.
Then we usually do some artistic / cultural activity. This time we are very excited to host the documentary LES NOIES DEL CARMEL.

Centre Cultural i Artístic: The Factory
We will transform the old factory spaces to create an international centre of art and culture around the relational body. We hope to attract an eclectic group of artists, professors and researchers from Catalonia and different parts of the world to organize workshops, festivals, exhibitions, residencies, debates, trainings, etc. These activities will be open to the members of Vidalia, to the population of the area and to the general public.
