The new Social Center of the Port des Canonge, will host from July 23 to August 12 the photographic exhibition ‘Africanas’, from the Barceló Foundation. A sample made up of images made by Amelia Fornés, head of the Foundation’s Projects Area, which show the strength and courage of the women beneficiaries of the Barceló Foundation’s projects in Africa, who make the impossible possible as they lead the change in the areas in which they reside.
Thus, through images of women -mainly from Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, countries in which Fundación Barceló carries out its cooperation projects-, visitors will be able to learn about their way of life in Africa, from their childhood. until, now converted into women, they take the reins of the family and raise their children and the people in their care.
The photographic exhibition is completed with six watercolors painted and provided by Patricia Cebrián (Valencia, 1978), a self-taught artist established in Mallorca. In them, Cebrián has captured the water well project started last year and still expanding in Uganda and Kenya, and through his brush he shows the effort that African women must make to bring water to their homes, since they are they -often since they were girls-, those in charge of making long trips on foot to be able to dispose of it.
The exhibition will be open to the public at the Social Center of the Port des Canonge (c / xxxxxx) from Monday to Friday, from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm and from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm; and on Saturdays, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Admission is free.
