Here and now: Formentera welcomes expo's 'transformative look' at volunteer work

expo fest intercultural 018Formentera's Office of Social Welfare reports on the opening this Wednesday of a photo display in Sant Francesc's central plaza. In El voluntariat: una mirada transformadora, Yago Soria shares the reflective take on volunteer work that earned him the Art Jove prize in a recent contest of young photographers.

The travelling, twelve-piece display of 1.2-metre wide prints and accompanying texts is presented by the regional minister of culture, participation and sport. Part of Soria's quest to provide visibility to volunteering in the Balearics, the show has already made stops in Palma and at the Universitat de les Illes Balears and plans are afoot for more on Eivissa and Menorca.

Volunteer on Formentera
Formentera currently possesses a strategy to coordinate local volunteer work. Islanders keen to join the Council's catalogue of registered volunteers can sign up via the Agenda Cultural linked to the Formentera Council website. There, hopeful volunteer workers can access the registry, details, a link to the explicative text posted on the Balearic Islands' official gazette, informational brochures and the form to register.
