New visiting hours at La Mola lighthouse

foto erro far 1The cultural branch of the Consell de Formentera reports that from tomorrow, Tuesday 15 October, new visiting hours will be observed at La Mola lighthouse. Winter hours—Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00am to 2.00pm—mean visitors can continue to enjoy the lighthouse space all year long.

Divided into two clearly distinct exhibition spaces, the cultural and educational centre opened on 1 July. The permanent exhibition explores its main focus—the sea—from a variety of angles: the marine environment, natural resources management, navigation and light signals. A second space is dedicated to temporary art exhibits.

On Friday 11 October the rotating exhibit space welcomed Erró al Far. The 12-piece exhibit of colour lithographs with dates between 2001 and 2012 was culled from the artist’s own bequeathment to the culture office.

General admission is €4.50. Admission is free for Formentera residents, visitors under 18 and the unemployed, and pensioners and students get in for €2.50.

Discussing plans for Balearic Islands Day celebrations

foto-reunio---preparacio---dia1Councillor of Culture Susana Labrador met today with the director general of inter-administration relations, Miquel Àngel Coll, to begin coordinating work on the events programme for the Balearic Islands Day (Dia de les Illes Balears) on 1 March. Part of an effort to make festivities reflective of diverse interests across the archipelago, recent years have seen the regional government encouraging island councils to take an active role in planning.

The Consell de Formentera and Govern balear will strike a collaborative agreement about programming that promotes a regional identity while still honouring the distinctive qualities of each island. Councillor Labrador welcomed the visit from Director General Coll and pledged that Formentera’s local government would “cooperate to ensure that this year’s programme is a complete one, and that there’s something for Formentera residents”.

Staff from the local and regional administrations were also in attendance at the gathering.

Meeting of language policy chiefs

reunio---poli--tica-lingu--i--1Language policy councillor Raquel Guasch met at the head offices of the Consell de Formentera with Beatriu Defior and Agustina Vilaret, the director general of language policies and the general secretary of universities, research and language policies for the Balearic Islands, to discuss language initiatives by both administrations.

At the close of the meeting, Guasch highlighted the importance of cooperation and coordination in achieving real change on language policies. Councillor Guasch also underscored other priorities—“to recuperate the self-study corner that’s been shuttered for years, and enhance the role of the Catalan language in restaurants and other local businesses”.

The language policies section of the Balearic government made assurances, moreover, that efforts are under way to implement “language reinvigorators” across the Balearics.
