The Town Hall calls, for the second consecutive year, the Democratic Memory Conference on the third anniversary of Calvià grave's opening. It is a conference to deepen, based on presentations, exhibitions and round tables, on the most serious and tragic events that occurred in the municipality in the last century, and as a remembrance of the people who suffered these events.

As the councillor for Democratic Memory, Rafel Sedano, recalls, the Conference was organised to create a space for reflection that began with the grave's opening on 8th October 2018, and the intention is, each year, to address issues related to the memory of Calvià village and, specifically, of the Democratic memory. For this, explains Sedano, voices are brought to the event that will make interesting contributions both at the municipal and supra-municipal levels.

Amongst the activities that the councillor highlights, there is the conference by Laura Camargo, co-editor of the Democratic Memory Law, the talk by journalist Emilio Silva, the participation of the Democratic Memorial of the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Solidarity Foundation of the University of Barcelona, and the collaboration with Memoria de Calvià in the tribute to the Calvià victims.

The II Calvià Democratic Memory Conference will start on Friday 1st October at Es Generador municipal youth building. After the presentation, in the opening session, and the intervention of former deputy Laura Camargo, the opening of the exhibition "Pequeñas cosas de un tiempo de espinas" will take place, a traveling exhibition of photographs promoted by the Memory Maps research Group of the UNED.

The different presentations to be held by participants from the island and from outside the island (the latter, online), such as journalist Emilio Silva or María Eugenia Santiago, authoress of the book “Esclaus oblidats. Els camps de concentració a Mallorca (1936-1942) ”, who will talk about Es Capdellà's working field, will take place on Saturday 2nd October at Sa Societat. The day will end with a round table on fascist symbology.

The Conference will end on Sunday 3rd October, with activities focused on educational proposals aimed at young people and children, which will take place at IES Bendinat auditorium, and with a talk and a walk to get to know Illetes fortress, by Manel Suárez.

Two theatre plays related to the theme will be offered in collaboration with Andratx Town Hall, at Sa Teulera Theatre.

Prior bookings are essential for all activities.
