The Canarian Museum of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will dedicate its activities and publications this March to the figure of a woman, as reported by this scientific society.
Thus, among these events is a new edition of the ‘A Night at the Museum’ programme, sponsored by Red Eléctrica, entitled ‘Women at the Museum’, which will take place on the 8th at 8:00 pm with free attendance after registration on the institution’s website.
It will address the role of different women in the culture of the Canary Islands and their relationship with the collections of the Canarian Museum.
Thus, the professor of literature Yolanda Arencibia will bring the figure of María Joaquina Viera y Clavijo to the audience; Laura T. García Morales, cultural manager of Concepto Cultura, will deal with the artistic work of Yolanda Graziani; Teresa Delgado Darias, curator of the Canarian Museum, will present the work carried out by women archaeologists in the Canary Islands; and Dulce Mª Sánchez, performer and teacher at the Conservatory of Music, will present the work of Canarian women composers from the Museum’s Music Archive.
Meanwhile, the Museum has indicated that another activity centred on women will be the visit ‘Getting to know the aboriginal woman’, which will be held on Sunday 13th at 12.00 noon as part of the ‘Family Visits’ programme, sponsored by Spar Gran Canaria.
This visit will recognise some of the work carried out by women and the importance of their activity in the maintenance and development of that society.
