We are a social group with a social purpose.
Get to Know Us
Before the BWN became the BWN, it was a small, informal gathering of expat women meeting in someone’s living room for coffee and friendly conversation. Although we’ve upsized our meeting space and our mission since then, we haven’t downsized the friendly.
It’s easy to get involved with the BWN community: take part in our activities and events, share your expertise with other members or with the charities we support, be a BWN volunteer when your schedule permits, join a committee. How and how much you do is up to you.
We'll be there!
Each year the American School of Barcelona holds a special orientation for the families of new students. The BWN will be there on August 31st to talk about who we are and what we offer to women in Barcelona.
“I have been living in Barcelona for almost 9 years now and, I was lucky to find out about BWN through a dear friend who introduced me to the group. I wasn’t looking for new friends or ways to fill my time. I simply thought it is a lovely blend of fantastic women from all around the world and with all kinds of experiences. (more…)
“I have been a member since the day one and have been very satisfied with the plethora of activities offered here, that caters to all. Being a crafter and creator of art, I have been able to explore and learn about the ‘art scene’ that this city offers. (more…)
“I’ve only been a member a few months, but already feel completely connected to the BWN. Since I am new to Barcelona, it’s been great to meet warm and interesting women with a wealth of experience. I feel like I have benefitted by being part of the group.”
“Although I am half Catalan and have lived in this city most of my life, I do not cease to be surprised at the creativity, extent and variety of the activities which are organized by BWN bearing in mind the different needs and interests of its members. (more…)
“I joined BWN in order to make friends. I didn’t have a job, study or have children, which are the most usual ways to meet people, so I had to look for an alternative. The BWN offers a fantastic way to meet women from all over the world (more…)
“When I came to Barcelona, the person in San Francisco that told me about BWN said, “You can try it out a couple of times without paying, but just join right away, the outings themselves are worth the membership fee!” I really do think that is true. Awesome job!!!!!”
