Chair of the equality and youth department Vanessa Parellada highlighted the programming surrounding International Women’s Day, 8 March. “We wanted this to serve as a reminder to young people that equality is something we have to fight for. Youth are vital to the struggle, because they represent both our present and our future”, she said.

The activities bill kicks off Wednesday 3 March with “Miss Escaparate”, a documentary that focuses on the absence of females in positions of power and questions the narrow and stigmatised image presented by the media. More in the same vein comes 6 March, when island youth are invited to take part in programming around the Vikingfader-made “mural of the woman” located outside the Casal.

Artistic activities
Also on the bill are artistic activities, like sticker-making 5 and 12 March, a spin art clinic on 10 March, and more spin art fun and freestyle creation with an “Evening of Art” on 13 March.

On 19 March there will be a callisthenics workshop.

On Saturday 20 March, young people can get the run-down on the Beni Trutmann photo contest and find out why they should take part in the smart-phone category.

Interested in online activities? Tune in 17 March for a series of tips about tailoring everyday routines for improved health. Then catch a virtual workshop on make-up 27 March.

And finally, online street dancing classes continue in March from Tuesday to Saturday, 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
