Regarding the KATHARSIS project, a team of teachers from La Salle Campus Barcelona proposes a perspective of social improvement from this workshop with the idea of forming a group of young immigrants from the Rius i Taulet Adult Training Center, in a area that is very attractive to them and very important in current training, such as digital art. From drawings and images, participants create allegorical characters and the results are set up as digital works, creating a gallery of characters that are the fruit of their thinking.

This is an exhibition with screens and explanatory panels, so that the participants become the protagonists of this proposal. The program is completed with the participation of university students from the degree as mentors for the participants in the workshop. The KATHARSIS project received the first prize 'Good practices in university social commitment' at the eleventh edition of the Aristos Campus Mundus Social Responsibility Awards.
