IU-Greens accuses the PP of not taking advantage of the promotion of culture in Lorca (16/05/2018)

"The Councilman of Culture is fond of stumbling twice in the same stone".

This was stated by Dori Peñas, councilor of IU-Verdes de Lorca after hearing the announcement of the program of the Night of the Museums on May 19.

Peñas has criticized that this important event is presented just 4 days before its celebration, as reported by IU-Verdes last year for the same reason, remembering that the International Museum Day is celebrated worldwide since 1977 and Since then, many other European cities have joined this initiative promoted by the Council of Europe.

The mayor warns that again our City Council has failed to take advantage of this opportunity for cultural, tourist and economic boost so relevant in the cultural landscape and could put our municipality in the limelight, especially when in this edition of 2018 the event has been announced by the Mayor of the city and the Councilor for Culture as an impressive display of monumental and cultural heritage on the occasion of one of the most popular events of the year, which attracts more visitors every year to enjoy activities, workshops or live samples.

For this reason, Peñas insists that this is not an activity that could be announced four days before, incurring the same error as in previous years, but that it should have been promoted with sufficient time to have been a significant boost for the culture, leisure, development, tourism and the local economy.

Even, has set as an example to municipalities such as Cartagena, which have an exclusive website for the promotion of this event, which detail a wide range of activities and an exemplary detail of its culture and leisure programming, complementary to the temporary and permanent exhibitions of the museums.

Peñas has highlighted that our municipality has a very interesting range of museums and the promotion of this event with enough time, and with the necessary dedication and interest, would be an important incentive for the promotion and the tourist, cultural and even economic development of Lorca, for which he says he does not find any justification for the presentation of the programming to be done again four days before, contributing this fact to having a scarce and deficient promotion, even though it is an event that has an very broad popular support, and every year thousands of Lorca and visitors enjoy it .;

and points out that this is another example of the lack of interest on the part of the PP for culture, giving as an example the Mining Museum of Almendricos, a project that has been forgotten despite its approval in municipal plenary sessions.

In addition, IU-Greens harshly criticize the government team for not putting into practice, or facilitating citizen participation of which both boast.

The mayor refers to the denial by the City Council to the Lorca Association for its Cultural Heritage of the permits requested to collaborate with activities focused on raising awareness of Lorca's heritage by taking advantage of the celebration of the International Day of Museums, carrying out their own activities together with municipal programming, thus hindering the participation of social groups

Finally, it is absurd to announce La Noche de los Muesos a few days after its celebration, while the congress of Hispania Nostra is announced in October, when the EDUSI opportunity has been squandered despite the state of the historic center and when A few months ago the Casa de los Guevara entered the red list of Hispania Nostra.
