A total of eight shows “With sufficient quality for our city” make up the programming for the months of February, March and April that the Department of Culture of the City Council of Collado Villalba has presented this morning. The councilor of the area, Pepe Colmenero, explained that the proposals will be carried out in the municipal theater, for which all the hygienic and sanitary measures of the Community of Madrid will be adopted and has stressed that “culture is safe and necessary ”.
At a telematic press conference, where he was accompanied by the mayor, Mariola Vargas, Colmenero has shelled “a very interesting program with front-line shows aimed at all audiences ”.
Agreement with Apascovi
In addition, the Councilor for Culture has taken the opportunity to announce the renewal and expansion of the agreement with the Apascovi Foundation. Thanks to this signature, several people with disabilities will be able to work both as room staff or helping at the lockers, as they have been doing until now, as well as in the loading and unloading area or as supporting technical work at the House of Culture.
“The sensations they have transmitted to us in this time have been very positive,” Colmenero said of his work in the tent of the La Malvaloca estate, where several shows programmed by the Consistory have been held, both for the work carried out and for the team of people who have collaborated.
Although the program presented this morning, belonging to the Network of Theaters of the Community of Madrid, will take place entirely in the municipal theater, the Councilor for Culture has advanced that are exploring other scenarios such as the La Malvaloca tent, Los Belgas or other outdoor spaces or the Miguel Hernández library, where he is studying the possibility of taking exhibitions given the impossibility of using the low money from the House of Culture due to “the internal movement of the workshops, the theater … and allowing safe access and complying with the regulations of the Community of Madrid”.
Regarding the accessibility works, once the first phase is finished, the councilor has explained that the part of the works, corresponding to the last floor of the theater, the exhibition hall and the ground floor, is in an administrative process to take out the sheet. “Once completed, the House of Culture will be fully accessible to people with reduced mobility.”
