El Día E

The network of Instituto Cervantes schools will be holding their usual E Day, the big Spanish language fiesta, on the 20th June.

Although there will be events in most of the schools, the main programme will take place at the Instituto Cervantes in Alcalá Street in Madrid, where there will be an open day and a series of cultural activities.

One of the most important of these is the Storytelling (from 11.00h to 14.00h).  Daniela Violi (Columbia), Ignacio Sanz (Spain) y Acoyani Guadalupe Guzmán Bárcena (Mexico) will be telling stories related to Don Quijote.

There will also be a workshop to construct the characters in Don Quijote run by César Fernández Arias, sculptor, painter and sketcher who has won the national prize for illustration.

All these activities, which are intended for children aged six to eleven, will be carried out by the Instituto Cervantes in collaboration with the Instituto Caro and Cuervo and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
