40th ENCATC Cultural Happy Hour to discover Spain’s Arts and Science Lab at the Spanish Embassy in Brussels

On the evening of 14 December, ENCATC celebrated the end of the year with its 40th Cultural Happy Hour at the Spanish Embassy in Brussels.

It was an honour to welcome more than 20 Cultural Happy Hour guests for a special cultural programme. After the official opening by ENCATC Secretary General, GiannaLia Cogliandro Beyens, and Sergi Farré, Scientific and Cultural Counsellor at the Spanish Embassy, guests were treated to a presentation of the cultural and scientific diplomacy of Spain including an Arts And Science Lab in Belgium that hosts artistic and scientific projects, debates, workshops, and small-size performances within its walls. For this presentation, Mr. Farré was joined by Felipe Santos, Director of Instituto Cervantes in Brussels, and Guadalupe Melgosa, Spain’s Education Counsellor to Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.

On this occasion, guests also enjoyed the conceptual work “It’s a trap” by Spanish artist Carolina Tafalla. The evening also included a duet performance by Hugo Ranilla de Castro (violin) and Adrián Hernández Altelarrea (clarinet).

The evening included much cultural discovery, music, and joy as ENCATC, its partner the Spanish Embassy, and its Cultural Happy Hour guests celebrated the holiday season.
