foto 2023v soib fi formacioThe Office of Local Development of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that 14 people have completed training and employment programmes for activity leaders and socio-health care attendants developed by the Balearic Islands Employment Service (SOIB) and Consell in the last year. Eight unemployed over-30s completed SOIB 30, a programme on socio-health care for dependents in social institutions, while six 16- to 29-year-olds completed SOIB Jove, a programme focused on leisure programmes and the Catalan language.

On a visit, Ana Juan, president and enterprise councillor of the Consell, praised students for successfully completing the training and wished them a productive future in employment.

The two programmes, which began 24 November 2022 and lasted six months, promote training and employment. Socio-health care students completed work practise at the Formentera Day Centre and seniors' residence, while those in the course for leisure activity leaders received on-site experience at the basketball and judo schools and Casal de Joves.

Consell de Formentera publishes print edition of work on local toponymy

foto 2023iv toponimaThe Language Advisory Service of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that, together with the Onomastics Society and in collaboration with the Onomastics Office of the Institut d'Estudis Catalans, it has published a physical edition of La toponímia de Formentera, a work by philologists Vicent Ferrer i Mayans and Enric Ribes i Marí.

In nearly 900 pages, this work brings together the toponyms and microtoponyms of the island, which, until now, were collected in scattered or even unpublished publications. The work also presents a toponymic map allowing readers to explore nooks, points, caves, passes, hills and roads of the island's interior and coast, name by name.

"This work will help us visualise our linguistic and toponymic heritage and allow us to preserve it and pass it on", said Raquel Guasch, heritage and language policy councillor.

The work, which will go on sale today, will be presented on 1 May in the Consell de Formentera plenary hall as part of the 49th Onomastics Society Colloquium. Colloquium attendees will also enjoy various communications concerning local toponymy.

Formentera Film Fest organises film workshop for island youth, directed by Pilar Aldea

The Office of Culture and Office of Youth of the Consell de Formentera are pleased to announce that 25 April to 1 May, Pilar Aldea will lead a free film workshop for local 12- to 18-year-olds as part of Formentera Film Fest. Interested parties can register at the Casal de Joves or by sending an email to monica@formenterafilm.com.

At "LET'S MAKE A SHORT" (FEIM UN CURT), young people will use new technologies to make short films like, as organisers put it, the "films of yesterday", covering pre-production, production, post-production and screening. The objective is to guide participants in the footsteps of grand masters of early cinema like Segundo de Chomón (1871-1929), Alice Guy Blaché (1873-1968), Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) and Buster Keaton (1895-1966), using current tools such as digital cameras, video stabilisers (cymbals), LED lights, key colour tools (chroma keys) and computer editing programmes.

16 May the results will be screened outdoors the Casal de Joves courtyard.
