The arduous shift towards caring for our environment, creating a dignified quality of life and reconstructing the communities that make this possible is always linked to the territory. What we need to know is about experiences of work in the territory, models of community practice connected with the land that can serve as examples for other places. For this purpose, we bring together the Spanish ecofeminist Yayo Herrero, the Cartagena activist Nilda Meléndez and the Ukrainian writer and activist Victoria Amelina, who will talk to Marta Ruiz.

Cursiva, the Penguin Random House Publishing Group’s teaching platform, and the Hay Festival, winner of the 2020 Princess of Asturias Award for Communication and the Humanities, are working together on the diploma in Cultural Management, a digital course for learning about all the facets of creating a festival and running one’s own cultural management projects. Cristina Fuentes La Roche (Spain), International Director of the Hay Festival; Pilar Reyes Colombia), Editorial Director of Alfaguara and Penguin Randome House España; and Lina Rodríguez (Colombia), General Manager of the Cartagena de Indias International Film Festival, will talk to David Lara about this course and the reasons why cultural management is a field that is on the rise, and its importance for the arts.
