Culture for everyone at Festival Eñe 2016

07.11.2016
For yet another year, Fundación Repsol is showing its commitment to inclusive culture in this latest edition of the Spanish literature festival.
Play Mira hacia arriba (Look Up)

Fundación Repsol has collaborated once again in the 8th edition of the Festival Eñe, held on 4th and 5th November at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, with activities related to inclusive culture.

The festival, which lasted 48 hours, featured the participation of 90 authors and over 40 activities, including theatre, film, comics, and music. As a novelty, this year Eñe has taken to the streets, with activities scheduled outside the usual venue.

As a children's activity, Fundación Repsol participated in a narrative workshop for children ages 8 to 10 called Cuentos de la calle (Tales from the Street), run by Rebeca Barrón, Director of Asociación Argadini, with which the Fundación Repsol organises literary workshops for people with disabilities.

Another one of the contributions of Fundación Repsol at the festival was the poetry reading by Mikey Mondejar, an author with a disability, who read a few poems from his latest book, Veinte Días a la medianoche (Twenty Days at Midnight).

With the collaboration of Fundación Repsol, the Polimetría 21 theatre group, made up of actors with and without learning disabilities, performed an adaptation of the play Mira hacia arriba (Look Up), which addresses changes in communication brought about by new technologies.
