The second talk will take place the day after on the 30th, at the education/cultural institution Euskal Echea in Llavallol, through the Department of Basque Language and Culture where Euskera and dances are taught.
Both talks will be complemented with “dantza-plaza” guided by the musical duo “Ziortza eta Leire” who will accompany Altube.
Following, the President of the EDB will travel to Mar del Plata where he will have the opportunity to meet with dance group directors who are also attending Semana Nacional Vasca 2018.
