A new apropa cultura programme!

09 March 2022

The new Apropa Cultura Balears programme for the spring–summer 2022 season was unveiled this morning.

The event started with a presentation by the coordinator of Apropa, Maria del Mar Matas, who noted the success of the previous season, with a total of 18 attached cultural planners, more than 75 registered centres or social organisations, more than 300 cultural activities announced and more than 2,200 cultural experiences enjoyed between April and December 2021.

Next, the various programmers presented their activities to the social organisations present. In the case of the Cathedral of Mallorca and the Museum of Sacred Art of Mallorca (MASM), Marta De Castro, a specialist from the Cultural Management Department, presented the activities designed for each of these bodies. On the one hand, activities that were already in the autumn–winter programme continue: “The Cathedral of Mallorca. A treasure in the heart of the city” and “The secrets of our collection. A journey through the Museum of Sacred Art of Mallorca”. These participatory visits have been well received by the social organisations attached to Apropa Cultura, with the participation of more than 220 people and a total of 12 bodies.

As innovations, two new activities have been added: firstly, “Said and done: A journey through the legends of the Cathedral of Mallorca and the Museum of Sacred Art of Mallorca”, a combined visit to both institutions to discover the sayings and legends of our culture and traditions that are linked to the Cathedral and the MASM; and secondly, an non-guided visit entitled “A stroll through the Museum of Sacred Art of Mallorca”, in which groups that request it can visit at their own pace, using – if they need – the support resources we provide.

All of the visits that form part of the programme of Apropa Cultura are free for the attached social organisations. Bookings can be made through the website of Apropa Cultura.

The Cathedral and the MASM both see opening up to society and making their spaces inclusive for all as priority objectives.
