In 2016 the association “Els Amics de Can Serrat” (Friends of Can Serrat) was established to complement the year-round program in the Can Serrat farmhouse with creative events organized with local involvement (theater, concerts, performances, workshops, seminars, artistic open calls) taking advantage of the access to the 260 m2 of the renovated bodega, a garden with full of wonderful spots, sound equipment for live performances and recording, and a manual printing press.  The association is composed of people from the surrounding area with the intention of decentralizing the artistic activity and bringing it closer to the rural.
