La Ponte-Ecomuséu organised a photography and video competition on Instagram to bring the activities we carry out closer to a young audience and to highlight the collective memories of the rural women of Santo Adriano through art. The theme of the competition was women, memory and territory and the photographs or videos had to represent the landscape, traditions and/or the Asturian countryside. This initiative is part of the activities organised by La Ponte-Ecomuséu within the framework of the European project Lands of Butterflies, co-financed by the Creative Europe programme and the Santo Adriano Town Council, which aims to recover and enhance the collective memories of rural women in Europe through art.
Two prizes have been awarded. The jury’s prize, which consists of a canyoning day for four people in collaboration with Deporventura; and the public’s prize, two invitations to ‘Una Señora Fiesta‘ on 22 July at La Benéfica (Piloña) for the photo or video with the most votes on Instagram. We would like to thank all the young people who participated and La Benéfica de Piloña and Deporventura for collaborating in this initiative.
The jury, made up of members of La Ponte-Ecomuseu, has highlighted the creativity, originality and high quality of the proposals and for this reason we have named two runner-up prizes to which we will give a copy of our publication Mariposa, Tierra, mujer (Butterfly, Earth, Woman). The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday 15th July at 18:00h at the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the ecomuseum in Villanueva de Santo Adriano.
