Committed to promoting culture and science, we undertake different projects with a broad range of institutions in the fields of science, art, literature, and music.
Conservation of heritage
Since 2013, we have been collaborating with the recovery of the Molinete Archaeological Park in Cartagena, which covers 26,000 m2, making it one of the largest located an urban area in Europe. Excavation and conservation work have been scheduled in four stages to excavate the Roman Forum area, make it possible for the public to visit the site,and create an educational centre, highlighting the incredible historical value of this archaeological treasure.
We invite you to discover more through this video.
Music and literature
We also collaborate on the Opera and + project with the Bilbao Association of Friends of the Opera (ABAO-OLBE) to bring the opera to the Barakaldo Cruces University Hospital. This initiative contributes to the emotional well-being of patients and their families, and has developed three different programmes in which music has a therapeutic role. These programmes target patients with nephrology (dialysis), hospitalised children, and newborns. Find out how this project is carried out in this video.
Fundación Repsol also maintains its support of the SonFuturo programme of the Symphony Orchestra of Galicia (OSG) with the aim of promoting young people's musical education and piquing their interest in this artistic discipline.
In the literature field, the Short Story Award in Galician is presented annually with the Secretary General of Linguistic Policy of the Xunta of Galicia, the Royal Galician Academy, and Association of Writers in the Galician Language (AELG). The winner receives a monetary prize and the publication of his or her book by Editorial Galaxia publishing house. The last winner was Daniel Asorey, with "Nordeste"

Internationally, Fundación Repsol works with the National Theatre School of Bolivia to promote theatre in the country and facilitate training in the performing arts for young people with limited resources at risk of marginalization. Each year, this initiative allows 90 young people to receive comprehensive training in the performing arts regardless of their socio-economic status. During the year, major international stars came to share some of their own experiences during the classes. The National Theatre School has become a benchmark for theatre work as it relates to vocational education and training and the search for human resources for cultural activities and audiovisual productions in Bolivia.
The Foundation also has collaboration agreements with leading organisations in culture and science such as the Royal Theatre, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Cervantes Institute, the Spanish-Brazilian Foundation, the Princess of Asturias Foundation, the National Library, the Friends Foundation at the Prado Museum, the Royal Association of Friends of the Reina Sofia Museum, Fundación MACBA, the CSIC, and the Fundación Atapuerca, among others.
