Due to the health crisis caused by Covid19, the Diputación de Palencia has transformed its summer program. Espiga, Cosecha Cultural was already a flagship of the Institution and a program awaited by people from Palencia and visitors from our province in the summer season. Despite the new reality that is presented, the Provincial Government has wanted to build a calendar of activities with the aim of offering a quality cultural and leisure offer that also complies with all security protocols against the virus. A special program that is fundamentally committed to being outdoors and that supposes in general data 111 activities in 98 towns in the province.
"To be again ... Culture", which will take place between July 10 and August 30; As usual for this Institution in the summer period, it aims to bring culture to a large part of the province, taking advantage of the fact that during this period our towns have more visitors, in addition to welcoming a large population of children and youth.
The fundamental pillar in this case is the participation of artistic formations and musical groups from Palencia, that commitment to local companies and entrepreneurs. Likewise, the logistics and infrastructure work that requires the assembly of all the shows has also been carried out with Palencia companies as far as possible, in such a way that the assembly and disassembly of the stages, the sound system, the tuning, the installation of chairs with the corresponding security measures, the presentation of events, as well as the design of the advertising campaign that carries the corporate image of this program, have Palencia stamps.
It should be noted that the programming is designed with varied activities and for all kinds of audiences: children's storytelling, storytelling and family oral narratives, theater, dance and music (classical music, folk, jazz, popular music ...).
In addition, the participation of the "Ortega EMO Music School" and the "Smile Dance School" must be highlighted, with a concert by students specially designed for this program in the first case, and an exhibition of Spanish dance in the second. We also have the participation of two renowned organists, who will offer four concerts, with the collaboration of the Fray Dpmingo de Aguirre Association through the Provincial Organ School of Palencia, through a novel experience based on transmission abroad. of the temples, and their viewing in streaming.
We also have a luxury stage in the capital, the Ortega Theater. A space that allows us to reach the largest possible population. It will offer a film marathon (2 screenings in the morning and 2 in the afternoon), a play, a jazz concert and the EMO concert. It is, therefore, a space that will allow the population who wants to enjoy shows, in a controlled capacity and with all security measures. (The entrance to the shows in this venue will cost 3 euros and can be purchased through the theater's website).
The Provincial Institution has invested 172,720 euros in the design and execution of this complete cultural and leisure program.
