Over five days, Formentera Fotogràfica finds some 100 photographers revelling in the art of the image

foto 2021 ffCThe ninth Formentera Fotogràfica came to a close yesterday, capping what FF director Francesc Fàbregas described as “a five-day run that saw 100 participants enjoying photo-related talks, workshops and outdoor activities set against the incomparable backdrop of Formentera”.

On hand were celebrated professionals such as Sofía Moro, Txema Yeste, Lua Ribeira, Ana Esmith - Miss Beige, Nando Esteva, Luis Tato, Cristina de Middel, Jon Cazenave, Paco Gómez, Gloria Oyarzabal, Fernando Maquieira and Ferran Forné of the ARA newspaper.

Fàbregas gave a positive assessment of this year's gathering, noting that "yet again, Formentera Fotogràfica has opted for an eclectic programme with the aim of giving space to, promoting and highlighting the inherent richness of contemporary visual culture in Spain".

Consell de Formentera president and councillor of tourism Alejandra Ferrer celebrated the fact that Formentera, which she described as “the ideal setting for this type of event”, finds itself once again associated with photography. She also stressed that local government organises these events to attract visitors outside the high season.

The Consell de Formentera sponsors Formentera Fotogràfica — intimate hands-on and theory-based sessions conducted by big names in photography and contemporary visual culture that help shape a space for knowledge, reflection and collective creation. The function is aimed at professionals, students and adepts of images who wish to exchange experiences with actors from the world of photography in an ideal setting like that of Formentera.

Registration for 2021/22 pottery course open

The Formentera Office of Commerce is pleased to unveil a pottery course geared toward adults and spanning November, January and February at Centre Antoni Tur 'Gabrielet'. Interested parties can register from today until 8 November through the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC) or in person at the OAC.

Deputy chief and commerce councillor Ana Juan welcomed the opportunity to offer the course during what she described as "a very sad year for everyone considering the passing of the course’s creative heart and soul, Remedios Castillo". For Juan, "Reme was more than a teacher and potter; it’s plain to see by the affection she gave to and received from her students and people who knew her. I'm sure she’d be very proud to see us carry on her work". The current offer is intended for islanders who took up ceramics under Castillo and are keen to continue, with organisers promising additional insight into assorted pottery techniques.

This year’s instructor is Tania Agredano. Space is limited and classes are available in the morning and afternoon. The price is €220 and there is a 30% discount for students under 25, pensioners and people with disabilities.

From Friday to Sunday (24–26 September), the seventh Formentera Zen focused on holistic wellness and featured master classes, workshops and lectures on dermatology, cosmetics, beauty, psychology, psychiatry, scientific and wellness dissemination, nutrition, batch cooking, health at home, physical exercise, yoga and more.

President and Councillor of Tourism Alejandra Ferrer was in charge of closing the event and welcomed participants’ positive feedback about the Consell-sponsored event overseen by Puro Bienestar. “Events like these are about giving our visitors and residents a space to reconnect body and mind”, she offered, underscoring Formentera’s association with physical and emotional well-being and remarking that Formentera Zen’s place at the end of the summer calendar was an “added bonus”.

Capacity at Formentera Zen 2021 was limited per current COVID-19 constraints. Organisers assert the island’s light, silence and natural beauty make it a unique and incomparable backdrop for experiences in health, wellbeing and happiness. Just like last year, the 2021 Formentera Zen will be held in full compliance with health and safety measures in force at the time of the event.
