Spanish Week Features Celebración: Las Fiestas Del Mundo Hispanohablante

Wazzup Pilipinas!

La Semana Espanola (Spanish Week) is a yearly event organized by the UP Circulo Hispanico.

It is the organization's main showcase, which aims to promote the Spanish language and culture through exhibits, film showings, contests, and talks, among others.

Annually, it has featured different themes each year, including food, movies, and architecture. This year’s Spanish Week theme is festivals, entitled Celebración: Las fiestas del mundo hispanohablante. The week-long celebration will start on April 10, Tuesday with Carnaval, an exhibit featuring the most popular festivals in the Spanish-speaking world at the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) Basement. 

On the same day, there will be a talk on the importance of festivals in the Philippines and Spain by Don Guillermo Gómez-Rivera, senior member of the Académicos Filipinos de la Lengua Española. 

On Wednesday is Mistura: Bingo Español. It is a modified bingo game, in which the cards contain Spanish vocabulary about popular food from different Spanish-speaking countries instead of numbers. Each card costs 10 pesos, for the benefit of our chosen community in our outreach activity. It will be at 5 pm onwards at CAL 201. 

Morelia, a film showing, will be on Thursday, from 4 pm onwards at CAL AVR. It will feature Viento Aparte (A Separate Wind), a Mexican film that tells the story of two siblings who embarked on a long journey through Mexico where they will face a broken and divided country country wounded by mistrust, resentment, and violence. 

On Friday, there will be a quiz bee on Fil-Hispanic culture, Tomatina: Eres La Leche, at 5:30 pm at CAL 201. 

Lastly, UP Círculo Hispánico gives back in Abrazos, its outreach activity at Manila Boystown on Saturday, April 14.
