On the Casal de Joves programme this April: dance, Sant Jordi celebrations and educational activities

cartell 2021 casal abrilThe Formentera Department of Youth Services announces the April activities bill at the drop-in centre for young islanders. The programme kicks off with an all-new initiative, Xerrades en Línia (Online Lectures), with an inaugural 6 April edition focused on transgender visibility in a nod to Transgender Visibility Day (31 March). Presented by Chrysallis, the talks will take place on the 6th and 16th at 6.30pm and the 28th at 5.00pm and may be attended person-to-person at the Casal.

Next up, 7–10 April, youngsters can take part in Formentera Film Project. Borne of collaboration between Formentera Film and the Casal de Joves, FFP will find youth producing a video chronicle of classes on street dance. On Wednesday the 14th the centre will screen the documentary Madre Tierra and on Thursday the 15th youth can catch No t’ofeguis en l’alcohol (Don’t drown in alcohol), an exhibition on display until the 30th.

A skateboarding-themed “gymkhana”, or field day, will take shape outside the Casal on Wednesday 21 April; a top-secret craft project for the feast day of Sant Jordi on Friday the 23rd, and a blacklight demonstration on Saturday the 24th. Activities will continue on Thursday the 29th with a viewing party to fete World Dance Day. The April programme draws to a close on Friday the 30th, when youth are invited to come and help decorate the centre.

“Whether it’s an exhibition on alcohol use, a documentary about the environment or a lecture about transgender issues, education and awareness about other realities have always been key to programming at the Casal”, insisted department chief Vanessa Parellada, “The spotlight might be on dance; or maybe it’s an event that deals with crafts or science. Whatever the focus, we do our best to accommodate creativity in all shapes and sizes”, adding, “Naturally, it wouldn’t be April without a little something for Sant Jordi”.
