Groupe ToNNe farewell party

La Ponte-Ecomuséu invites to the farewell party of the artists collective Groupe ToNNe on July 1st in Villanueva de Santo Adriano.

Throughout the month of June, La Ponte-Ecomuséu has hosted three artists from the French company “Groupe ToNNe” for a residency of artistic creation developed within the framework of the European project “Lands Of Butterflies”. During these weeks, the group of creators worked with the local population on the interpretation of the collective memory of the women of Santo Adriano.

The collective has captured their experiences, learnings and impressions gathered during their stay through the creation of a series of short videos and illustrations. The works produced will be presented on Saturday 1 July at 19:30, in the chapel of El Carmen, in Villanueva, and the event will close with an “espicha” in the square as a farewell. The event is open to all those who want to get to know and enjoy the work of the Groupe ToNNe.
