This year, Saint Lucia and Spain commemorates the 30th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relationship. To celebrate this milestone, the Embassy of Spain in Saint Lucia, in collaboration with Headphunk will host a special Spanish Literary Night, under the theme, ‘Musings on the Way to Peace,’ this Thursday at the Pigeon Island National Landmark from 7pm.
The evening will offer a magnificent taste of Spanish speaking literature, art and tradition as actors from the Spanish, Latin American, Spanish Caribbean and local Saint Lucian actors, poets and artistes, interpret the words of revered Spanish speaking Poets. Spanish Literary Night is an artistic opportunity to immerse oneself in Spanish culture, and creatively and to appreciate and gain insight about Spanish language and heritage.
As the relationship between Spain and Saint Lucia grows stronger and longer, the Embassy is intent on organizing events which will promote cultural exchanges between local and Spanish Artists; activities which aim to highlight the cultural and social ties between both countries. Moreover the Embassy of Spain in Saint Lucia says understanding and loving Spanish speaking literature and culture is the truest way to learn the language. Coordinator for Spanish literary night Ms. Kentillia Louis stated; “‘this is an opportunity to explore similarities and differences between English and Spanish languages using a genre that is built on word crafting and understanding language.’
Spanish Literary Night is therefore another unique initiative organized by the Embassy of Spain, in their joint efforts with the Embassy of Mexico to promote the Spanish language in the English Speaking Caribbean States.
