|“Culture: Alternatives, Diversity and Rights,” to be Discussed in the Spanish Cultural Center|
The Spanish Cultural Center will present an exhibition and discussion on Wednesday May 21 at 7:30 p.m. The subject is “Culture: Alternatives, Diversity and Rights.” The exhibition will gather posters made by professionals in the field of visual communication from Spain and Latin America. Each piece of work will constitute a position and a particular vision of its creator in the debate on cultural rights.
The exhibition will gather posters made by professionals in the field of visual communication from Spain and Latin America.
The exhibition, produced by the AECID and coordinated by the Spanish Cultural Center (CCE), forms part of the proposal that the CCE will be offering its visitors during May and June. As part of Arte Miches cultural week, the same exhibition will also be on display at this location from June 24-29.
“Culture: Alternatives, Diversity and Rights” is enriched by the work of young Dominican artists invited by the Center and who have produced work especially for this exhibition and for the Zero-CCE space.
At the same time, the Center will be offering workshops, guided visits of the exhibition for school children and teachers as well as a series of conferences on Cultural Rights. This activity will be overseen by Mireia Tresserra, from Spain, Romina Bianchini of Argentina and Dominicans Soraya Aracena, Dagoberto Tejeda and Nadal Walcott.
These activities, overseen by educators, community leaders, cultural managers and creators, contain significant educational and social content for diffusion, recognition and appropriation of cultural rights.
The cycle of activities will begin on Tuesday May 27 at 5:00 p.m. These events have the support of various institutions such as the ProjectCulture’s network of cultural organizers, the Dominican Republic Memory of the Nation Foundation and the Museum of the Dominican Man.
Upon releasing this information, Fernando Rueda, director of this Spanish institution, noted that UNESCO has declared May 21 World Day Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development and, she added, this is an excellent month to work for cultural rights.
“Let us take advantage of this special time to work with artists, creators, thinkers, researchers and teachers from different places around the Dominican Republic, America and Europe, all of whom add brush strokes of diversity and who make us think and dialogue and debate important issues like human rights from the perspective of cultural diversity,” said Ms. Rueda.
