The Cabildo de Tenerife, through the area of Employment, Socioeconomic Development and Foreign Action, has presented the official poster for the II International Conference on the Roseta that will take place in July in Vilaflor. The project selected among the different proposals of the Graphic Design students has been that of Daniel Hernández Alonso.
This poster has been presented at the Fernando Estévez School of Art and Superior Design, with the presence of the counselor of the area, Carmen Luz Baso; the insular director of Economic Development, Ermitas María Moreira; the management team of the Center, whose director is María Jesús Delgado González, the staff of the Insular Craft Company area and the students of the School.
The minister explained that this presentation is “one of the many actions carried out by the Cabildo with the Center to promote crafts in Tenerife and promote its practice as a sustainable activity.” In addition, she has emphasized the importance of the participation of the youngest in this type of project to spread the crafts that exist on the Island.
For her part, the director of the Center, María Jesús Delgado, has valued the initiative of the Cabildo and the work carried out by the students and teachers of the School, from the design of the poster to promote the international meeting to the new proposed uses for the rosette. “The work has started from research, to continue with analysis and development, discovering in this way the incalculable value of island crafts”, she explained.
The Center has carried out various activities that revolve around the II International Conference on the Rosette. In addition to the presentation of proposals for the poster of the event, other initiatives have been the preparation of various works by the students, which will be exhibited at the event, or the programming of workshops at the Center, which aim to increase their knowledge about the artisan trades of Tenerife.
Likewise, last Friday, 34 first-year students attended the exhibition at the Museum of Ibero-American Crafts in Tenerife. During the activity they were given a didactic talk on the history and value of the Rosette, to later enter the exhibition. There they were able to take notes and photographs on this lace to later work on it in the classroom.
On the other hand, outside the framework of this event, the Cabildo and the School of Art carry out other joint initiatives such as internships for students of the Fashion degree in the companies of the Tenerife Moda program, collaborations in events in the area or coordination between entities so that the center can access the resources available to the Cabildo on crafts.
