The City of Tampere Cultural Affairs organises a Spanish cultural event on 12. - 14.10.2010. The three-day event includes a seminar, various lectures on different aspects of the Spanish culture, a poetry evening and a concert. The event continues on 26.10. with the opening of a Spanish-themed exhibition at the Emil Gallery. The exhibition is open until 21.11.
The event is meant for all citizens of Tampere, and the purpose is to present Spanish culture in a versatile manner. Spain is a familiar country to many Finns through beach holidays, but its culture has many more sides to it than red wine and tapas.
