Spanish Week 2018: Celebración Las fiestas del mundo hispanohablante [event]

UP Circulo Hispanico invites you to join La Semana Espanola (Spanish Week) 2018, a yearly event which aims to promote the Spanish language and culture through exhibits, film showings, contests, and talks.

This year’s Spanish Week theme is festivals, entitled Celebración: Las fiestas del mundo hispanohablante.

The week-long celebration will start on April 10, Tuesday with Carnaval, an exhibit featuring the most popular festivals in the Spanish-speaking world at the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) Basement.

On the same day, there will be a talk on the importance of festivals in the Philippines and Spain by Don Guillermo Gómez-Rivera, senior member of the Académicos Filipinos de la Lengua Española.

On Wednesday is Mistura: Bingo Español. It is a modified bingo game, in which the cards contain Spanish vocabulary about popular food from different Spanish-speaking countries instead of numbers. Each card costs 10 pesos, for the benefit of our chosen community in our outreach activity. It will be at 5 pm onwards at CAL 201.

Morelia, a film showing, will be on Thursday, from 4 pm onwards at CAL AVR. It will feature Viento Aparte (A Separate Wind), a Mexican film that tells the story of two siblings who embarked on a long journey through Mexico where they will face a broken and divided country country wounded by mistrust, resentment, and violence.

On Friday, there will be a quiz bee on Fil-Hispanic culture, Tomatina: Eres La Leche, at 5:30 pm at CAL 201.

Lastly, UP Círculo Hispánico gives back in Abrazos, its outreach activity at Manila Boystown on Saturday, April 14.
