Promoting Catalan in local commerce, hospitality and services

The Language Advisory Service (Servei d'Assessorament Lingüístic, SAL) of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce assistance to promote the use of Catalan in commerce, hospitality, industry and services on Formentera.

The assistance is intended to cover the costs of Catalan-language actions –business and vehicle signage, labels, printed material and restaurant menus, merchandising, work clothes and design of web pages, QR codes and electronic platforms– implemented between 1 January 2021 and 30 September 2022, with up to €1,000 per beneficiary.

Through collaboration with the local business community, this line of aid seeks to extend the use of Catalan in socioeconomic activities and, in particular, "to influence the linguistic landscape of the island, which is a reflection of the vitality of Catalan and an essential part of its normalisation", explains Raquel Guasch, councillor of language policy.

Interested parties can submit their application and supporting documentation until 15 October 2022 at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) or at the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC). Application forms can be obtained at SAL (Carrer del Arxiduc Lluís Salvador, 2) or downloaded from the Consell de Formentera website.

Sala d'Exposicions 'Ajuntament Vell' welcomes 'Aaron Keydar–Anthology: 50 years of research in wood'

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that from 17 to 27 August, Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" will host "Aaron Keydar–Anthology: 50 years of research in wood".

The exhibition is composed of 15 sculptures made between 1975 and 2021. Keydar presents works crafted from olive, almond, pine and juniper tree wood and black amber. Part of his work has a figurative component.

Keydar, who trained as an architect, studied in Israel and London. He has lived on Formentera for fifty years, and this is where he began working with wood, as he says, "accidentally", first making furniture and later sculptures. His works are part of public and private collections.

The exhibition opens Tuesday 16 August at 8.00pm, and can be seen Monday to Saturday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" is closed Sundays, holidays and Monday mornings.

The paintings of Frank Delange at "Ajuntament Vell"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that from 2 to 13 August, Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" will host an exhibition titled "Frank Delange".

The artist's eponymous exhibition comprises roughly 20 pieces – some oil on linen, others pastels on paper. The display offers a journey through Delange's pictorial career and includes scenes of water, flowers, fruits and Mediterranean vegetation. Some works, such as one featuring rocks at Sa Pedrera, showcase local scenery.

In roughly 1965, Delange, who began yearly visits to Formentera as a child, found in the island a space to create and carry out the study of light that so typifies his work, a universe of colour and luminosity underpinned by rigorous technique.

"Frank Delange" opens 1 August at 8.00pm at Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" and will be on view Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

The gallery is closed Sundays, holidays and Monday mornings.
