The sixteenth edition of the Hay Festival Segovia will be held from September 16 to 19, 2021. For the first time, to celebrate the heritage of Castilla y León there will be a series of previous events in various venues in the region. All events will be in-person — some will be streamed too — respecting the security protocols. More information here.
Rural depopulation, culture and a need to return to nature are the themes that will occupy this meeting between two writers: Fermín Herrero and Carlos Aganzo. The poetry of Fermín Herrero, winner of the Castile and Leon Literature Prize, has become a symbol of the España vacía, or ‘Empty Spain’. The poet and journalist Carlos Aganzo is linked to the El Norte de Castilla, Miguel Delibes’ newspaper, a publication that is profoundly involved with the countryside and the rural world. Natural and cultural heritage come together to give voice to the land, at an event in which the Hay Festival extends its arms, from Segovia, around Castile and Leon.
Eva Hache is an actor, presenter and comedian in the most genuine and traditional meaning of the word, but she is also one of those people who, from her first appearances, has been taken up warmly by the public. Now she has put this to good use, working for teenagers and young people to help them with their problems through the podcast Tú no me conoces, broadcast by Podimo. In it, Generation Z can talk, without censorship or filters, about matters such as sexual identity, physical image, the use of social media, spirituality, pornography… conversations that are often difficult to have with parents, teachers and even peers.
Eva Hache will talk to Javier Celaya, General Manager of Podimo in Spain. Celaya is an expert in helping cultural enterprises make a profit in the digital era. Using platforms such as Dosdoce.com, it has supported publishing companies, museums, libraries and foundations in positioning themselves on the Internet.
