ATLAS is an Alternative Travel Local Association on the island of Gran Canaria. Our mission is to create an alternative to the unfair mass tourism industry, which brought little benefits for local people. We see travel as a way to promote cultural exchange, environmental awareness and a fair economy.
ATLAS is an important space and a reference for alternative culture in Las Palmas, as we provide a space for artists, associations, activists,and everybody wanting to share art, culture or knowledge. (Facebook: Asociación Atlas Gran Canaria)
This is reflected in multiple events per week like concerts, workshops, talks, performances, meetings and theater acts. All this is possible thanks to the arrival of travelers, whose contributions make it possible to maintain our space.
We look for volunteers helping us in the office welcoming guests, organizing daily tasks, with cultural events and with cleaning tasks. We welcome all volunteers to get involved in the activities organized by the association.
