'Habitar', a group exhibition and artistic immersion in the local social fabric, at 'Ajuntament Vell'

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that from 29 May to 10 June, the "Ajuntament Vell" exhibition space will host "Habitat", a spring group exhibition organised and promoted by the Association of Artists of Formentera (ADAF) with the participation of 15 local artists.

The artists' decision to unite their talents in a group exhibition was born from the urgent need to address the issue of housing in our society. This unique and diverse exhibition highlights the artists' sense of social responsibility in sharing their vision on the crucial and sensitive subject of housing and our place on the island, and transform it into works of art.

Under the concept of "inhabiting", each artist has channelled their emotions and personal perspectives into the work, bringing together a wide range of styles and disciplines. The exhibition will include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works, with oil and acrylic paintings, mixed techniques, photography, wood sculptures, and other forms of artistic expression. The group exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover and appreciate local artistic talent and the diversity of approaches to this timely theme. "The exhibition is a reminder that art is a universal language capable of transcending barriers and connecting people. Not only does it give local artists a platform to express themselves, but also invites us all to explore and question our relationship with the environment around us", explained ADAF.

Participating artists include Anna Reina, Bea Cubero, Brenda Novak, Diana Masiliauska, Emilia Brussoni, Fran Lucas Simón, Laura Larocca, Lola Raya, Marco Sánchez Noé, Maria Lagrange, Maribel Escandell Guasch, Irina Zadek, Simona Colzi, Silvina Taffuri and Teresa Matilla.

"Habitar" opens Monday 29 May at 8.00pm, and can be seen until 10 June, Tuesday to Saturday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm in the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell".

The Office of Sport of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that it has begun preparing the Values Plan for the 2023-2024 academic year, including the launch of Nena i Esport, an online platform that architects of the project hope will work in tandem with local schools. Paula Ferrer, sports councillor, explained that the goal is "to use sport and [the] platform as tools to promote gender equality".

The platform will be used to propose activities encouraging girls, boys and actors around them to debate, investigate and reflect on gender equality in sport. The proposal supports teachers by offering practical and interactive activities designed for years five and six of primary school and years one through five of secondary school.

To encourage teachers of PE and other subjects, homeroom teachers and school administrations to participate, the Office of Sport has sent a letter with all the information and a form to schools.

Consell holds final plenary session of legislature

foto 2023v pleToday plenary members of the Consell de Formentera met for the final session of the legislature, where members of the Gent per Formentera (GxF) and Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) cabinet and of the opposition (Sa Unió) endorsed, among other proposals, the Sustainable Water Management Plan and Emergency Plan for droughts in the municipality of Formentera. Representatives had first reviewed a related report prepared by the Studies and Planning Service of the Directorate General of Water Resources of the Balearic Government.

In another vote, cabinet members trumped the opposition's abstention to approve €499,186.45 in grants for efficiency improvements in the urban water cycle. The proposal was part of the Plan for Recovery, Transformation and Resilience, which draws on the annual fee for FCC Aqualia's drinking water distribution service.

Finally, assembly members handed unanimous backing to a proposal to update the Consell de Formentera's inventory of assets and rights. The motion is effective 1 May 2023 and is presented every four years before the end of the legislative term.
