CaminaLee

Jardín Guerrero (espacio Hay Festivalito)

CaminaLee is an initiative that organizes walks aimed at connecting your feet and your brain, letting you listen to stories, characters, history, legends and adventures, all from a different perspective. Connecting with your imagination and your inner wisdom while you walk, feeling what you see. Walking but also reading to visit other worlds, fantastic worlds that you were not aware of, worlds where you can learn about the past, the present and the future. With CaminaLee, we will go out and tour iconic locations in the old quarter, finding the most important sites, monuments and churches. An explanation will be given about each of them, including the Teatro de la Ciudad, the Guerrero Gardens, the Palacio Municipal, the Church of Santa Clara, the Fountain of Neptune, the Casa de la Marquesa, the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro route and many other places, with rest stops and discussion of historical figures and the chance to draw them too.

Teresa Alcántara in conversation with Óscar Pedraza Nieto

Museo de la Ciudad (sala Cristo)

The life of Alina changes drastically the day she receives some terrible news: Daniel, her best friend, has killed himself because of the bullying he was suffering. What is the worst? Nobody seems to care and Mauricio and his gang, the bullies of our story, go unpunished. Only Alina’s grandmother has an answer to her granddaughter’s concerns, when she tells her about a creature who can act as a defender, and she teaches her the recipe to create one, assisted by Lenny, her golem. At this event, we reflect together with Teresa Alcántara about of El extraño caso de Lenny Goleman, by author Liliana Blum, on this evil which affects so many young people, how to tackle it and, above all, how to bring justice in cases of bullying. The event will be moderated by Óscar Pedra Nieto.
