Formentera takes stand to end gender violence with two weeks of programming

foto eliminacio violencia dona 2018Social welfare secretary Vanessa Parellada sat down with Espai Dones chairwoman Dolores Fernández Tamargo and Azucena Carrasco, a specialist in the social welfare office, to unveil the slate of activities lined up to mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This year's catchphrase is “Vives ens volem”, or roughly translated, “Keep us alive”.


The action starts with the Baal company's production of CROTCH before cinema audiences (Sala de Cultura)—and doesn't stop until Sunday November 25.

For seven days in November—the 14th, 16th, 21st, 23rd, 26th, 28th and 30th—Malaika Comet will be at the Casal d'Entitats to host a clinic on illustration and art therapy with the women of Visions (10.00am to 12.30pm).

At 7.30pm on Friday the 16th, the local notary public, Javier Gonzalez Granado, will be on hand to explain marital property law in terms of spousal rights and inheritance in the culture bureau's Sala d'Actes.

On Monday, the Ajuntament Vell welcomes a new exhibit and its keeper, Malaika Comet. Titled Visions, the collection features artwork from a feminist drawing workshop held on Eivissa.

At 6.30pm on Wednesday the 21st, the Casal de Joves will host a screening of filmmaker Céline Sciamma's Girlhood. A discussion afterwards will focus on adolescent girlhood in low-income neighbourhoods.

At 7.30pm on Friday the 23rd, the façade of the Sant Francesc church will become a canvass for María Acha-Kutscher's Indignades, a collection of photos of women in public protest in Latin America. At 9.30pm the Sala de Cultura will screen Custodia compartida.

For International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on Sunday November 25, the morning of activities starts at eleven with an outreach stand in Sant Francesc's plaça de la Constitució. At noon students of the Eivissa-Formentera conservatory will give a live performance, followed by a flash mob set to Rosalia's Malamente. An hour later the day's manifesto, an appeal to end gender violence, will be read publicly. Later that evening, at 8.00pm, the Sala de Cultura will project Custodia compartida once again.

Lastly, Thursdays in November and till year end, Giuseppe Macchione will welcome students at the Casal d'Entitats for a course on the live, samba-like jam sessions known as batucadas.
