Cultural Development - Fitness Gallery
Gibraltar Cultural Services on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, as part of it's cultural development programme, is launching a 'Fitness Gallery' initiative, working alongside personal trainer Kezia Lopez.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Gibraltar Exhibition of Modern Art (GEMA), Montagu Bastion in Line Wall Road, on Saturday 7th October 2017 between 9:30am and 12:30pm. The idea is to bring together fitness and art in the same space, in the same vein as similar events happening in cities across the world, such as recently seen at the New York's Metropoitan Museum of Art.
The Minister for Culture, the Media, Youth and Sport, the Hon Steven Linares MP said:
'I am very proud that our Culture team working alongside Kezia Lopez, are putting in place an initiative that will promote art and sport in the same place, our GEMA gallery.
The Gibraltar Government is fully committed to creating new cultural development programmes and I am delighted that Ms Lopez, who proposed this event, will kick start this initiative. We hope to be able to further this programme in other of our historical cultural venues.'
Commenting on the announcement, CEO Designate, Seamus Byrne said:
'Those who attend the event will exercise, work out and view art. We hope that this cultural development programme will be more of an emotional and powerful experience than merely standing and observing art.
I am confident that the experience will surely change people's perception of looking at the art whilst at the same time supporting GCS marketing initiatives for GEMA as a historical and heritage art Gallery.
The event, that forms part of the Autumn Cultural Programme, will see GCS heritage art experts giving presentations before the fitness class led by Kezia begins at 10am. The event will also feature fitness, nutrition and beauty pop ups.
The exciting hour long fitness classes are accessible for all fitness levels. The participation fee will be £38 and includes:
