In 2008, he cooperated with Step by Step Foundation donating work to raise funds for a school in Tipa Tipa, Haiti.


In 2006, he was one of the twelve artists invited to the University of Valencia's contemporary art project ARTE LATEX. Antuán's Testimonios  (2006) is an installation which documents months of interviews with hundreds of AIDS patients, first in Florida, USA and then in Spain.


In 2006, he created the  Premio a la Resistencia (Resistance Award) for social workers in La Coma neighborhood in Valencia.


From 2003 to 2005, he opened his studio to the public every Wednesday as an Energy Healing Center in collaboration with other artists.


En 2004, Florida International University commissioned him the design of two bronze awards to honor benefactors and professors.


As from 1998, Antuán has been working in cooperation with Colegio Mayor of the marginal neighborhood of La Coma in Valencia, Spain, in the design of projects for cultural and social development which will seek, through art and its teaching, to include into society, cultural and ethnic groups that have been discriminated against, as the gypsies.


From 1998 to 2006, he worked together with the Spanish Fundación Bancaja on several projects related to cultural, social and ecological development. 


In 2003, he worked with Joaquín García Roca, the well known Spanish writer and sociologist, giving a series of conferences to sociology students at several universities in Spain, using art as an aid to social management.


In 2002, he participated in the project The art to the mountains in the Escambray mountain range in central Cuba, painting murals for rural schools while working as an art instructor in far-away locations.


In 1996, while studying bronze casting in the south of France, he worked with the group Cuba-Francia in an humanitarian project by sending donations from the port of Marseille to Cuba.


In 1996, he developed a Theatre Program in Condado in Santa Clara, one of the most marginal neighborhoods in central Cuba.


In 1995, he directed all cultural activities at the Marta Abreu orphanage in Santa Clara.


From 1993 to 1994, he cooperated with the Samuel Feijoo professorship for the development of popular culture, creating the Samuel Feijoo Center in San Juan de los Yera.


In 1992, he created and helmed a four-year interdisciplinary conservation commission, the ECO Project in Felipe Varela Superior School of the Arts, where he was a professor from 1989 to 1996.
