Presentation of Bestiarium and Trashumancia RoadShow, in Ávila

From the Interprofessional of Sheep and Goat meat, INTEROVIC, we want to invite you to participate in the new cultural project that starts this weekend (May 20, 21 and 22) in the San Francisco auditorium, in Ávila, and that we carry out together with the photographer José Barea.

Thanks to this union, the presentation of the BESTIARIUM photography exhibition will take place. An exhibition that stands out for its dynamic and moving component, as it will tour the Cañada Real Soriana Occidental for several months in its commitment to highlighting the quality and flavor of the native meats that come from this extensive livestock model.

Throughout the weekend you can participate in training workshops on initiation of weaving, dyeing and felting of wool, tastings of Paquito lamb, the most traditional and fashionable sandwich, the Entre Lanas textile exhibition, local producer markets… There are also school activities planned for the little ones, training tents and much more.

Other dates that Trashumancia Roadshow will pass through:

– From May 27 to 29 Shearing House of Cabanillas del Monte in Torrecaballeros (Segovia)

– June 11 and 12 Riaza Shearing Festival (Segovia)

– From June 24 to 26 Burgo de Osma (Soria)

What is the Road Show?

If transhumance is a form of grazing in continuous movement, ROADSHOW is its equivalent in cultural terms. This new project, promoted thanks to the alliance between the Interprofessional INTEROVIC and the photographer José Barea, author of the images featured in the exhibition, takes the BESTIARIUM exhibition throughout Spain and includes activities around extensive livestock farming and transhumance in each of your stops. “The objective of the exhibition is to make the names of these animals and their importance in maintaining the rural world known,” says the author of the portraits starring BESTIARIUM and in which it seems that the protagonists are posing in front of the camera. For this reason, each photo includes the indication of the name, the place of origin and the historical and cultural data related to each breed of sheep, goats or dogs that are part of the transhumance.
