Casal de Joves unveils October activities programme

The Formentera Office of Youth Affairs is pleased to announce the activities that have been organised at the Casal de Joves this October. Vanessa Parellada, Councilor of Youth Affairs, highlighted "the theme of terror" that will invade the youth drop-in centre at month's end: "All Saints Day and Halloween celebrations have been extremely well received in years past, though of course we'll be celebrating homespun traditions like the trencada de pinyons, too".

The kick-off hits today with an evening sofa-and-popcorn session, where youngsters can take in a horror film to set the mood for the holidays ahead. Additional Wednesday night movies are scheduled 19 and 26 October.

Friday 7 October, moonlighting singers choose their own songs at a live karaoke session. Saturday 8 October, team games and challenges as part of a gymkhana in and around the Casal. Friday 14 October, youth can join in a game of Twister. Saturday 15 October, table tennis aficionados are invited to the Casal for a tournament.

Friday 21 October, a climbing wall activity will be staged at Es Roco in Sant Francesc (places are limited, so register in advance at the Casal). Saturday 22 October the Casal will don horror regalia and host a trencada de pinyons. Finally, Sunday and Monday (30 and 31 October) will see the return of the Casal del Terror. The activity is for children over 12 and will take place at the Casa de Colònies from 8.00pm. (Tickets are required; pick them up at the Casal from Thursday 13 October. Participants must be in fancy dress.)

The Casal de Joves opens Tuesday to Saturday from 4.00pm to 10.00pm. All are welcome to visit and play board games, table tennis, table football and more. The Casal team of activity leaders is always there, too.

Youth Day and Evenings of Art among highlights of August activities programme at Casal de Joves

The Formentera Office of Youth is pleased to present the August activities programme at the Casal de Joves. Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth, said, "It's one of the hottest months of the year, so small wonder Saturday 6 August brings the return of one of summer's most refreshing activities: a water games workshop".

Parellada revealed two red-letter events in particular: "Friday 12 August, youngsters at the Casal will celebrate Youth Day (Dia de la Joventut) with music and food, and discuss the crucial role of youth at every level of society".

Then, on Friday and Saturday 27 and 28 August, participants in Evenings of Art (Tardes d'art) will use their imagination and creativity to make a large drawing on a piece of canvas that will later be cut out and used to decorate the Casal.

On three Wednesdays (3, 10 and 24 August), the crowd at the Casal will screen films on topics of special interest to youth and, on four Thursdays (4, 11, 18 and 25 August), aspiring illustrators are encouraged to join a perennial favourite: the manga drawing workshop.

Regulars at the Casal de Joves rehearsal room and open mics, the four are united by friendship and music in an urban music project that promises to ignite Nit Jove.
