Formentera to host celebration of Balearic culture and folk traditions

ball-pag--s1The Formentera Council’s patrimony department reports that Monday October 29 will be the last day to sign up for the region’s third Jornades de Cultura Popular i Tradicional, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, November 2-3.

Jornades de Cultura turn three

As the entity responsible for protecting and spreading intangible cultural heritage, the Balearic Islands’ advisory council on popular and traditional culture launched the jornades (Catalan for “day-long events”) to promote research and reflection. The initiative is also supported by the regional ministry of culture, participation and sport and the Formentera Council.

Scheduled to unfold at the island’s dependent care centre, the “popular and traditional culture days” are envisioned as a yearly event that will rotate between Formentera, Eivissa, Menorca and Mallorca.

This year’s event will focus on the often intangible forms of cultural capital like museums, land and repositories of memory such as objects, images and sound.

As ever, speakers will be field specialists from the islands and beyond. This year’s list includes Josep Fornés Garcia, head of Museu Etnològic de Barcelona; Lina Sansano Costa, head of Eivissa’s Museu Etnològic and Arxiu del So i la Imatge; Francesc Cabañés Martínez, head of cultural dissemination, learning and communication; Carme Castells Valdivielso, head of Fundació Mallorca Literària, and Albert Costa Ramon of the holdings, collections and restoration unit of Museu Valencià d’Etnologia. Speakers and attendees are invited to a final discussion to close the event.
