Ellas Crean Festival
26 February  -6 April  

International Women’s Day takes place on 8 March, and you can celebrate by attending Ellas Crean, a festival of artistic and academic expression created by women, for women. The ninth year of this showcase is dedicated to Rita Levi-Montalcini, the 1986 winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, who recently passed away. What makes Ellas Crean unique is its variety of categories—exclusively showcasing female work in the fields of theatre, dance, cinema, art, literature and music, reflecting each artist’s experience and demonstrating the creative process and talent of those involved. Included in the music programme are Honduras-born jazz vocalist and pianist Eva Cortés, flamenco singer Maria Toledo, and talented young pianist Terezie Filalová. A season of films by Spanish director Isabel Coixet forms part of the cinema programme, and two museums are holding conferences—the Museo del Prado offers La mujer como sujeto creativo y elemento representativo en el Museo del Prado, in which speakers will address female characters in art and their symbolic significance, whilst the Museo Lázaro Galdiano explores the images of women found in its own collection. These events make up but a fraction of Ellas Crean—with more than 150 participants, 57 presentations, and 64 spaces, check the website for full details.
