Mexico CityMexico City and the Spanish Cultural Center in Mexico, or CCEMx, have signed a memorandum of understanding on the implementation of cultural agreements and projects.

 

The agreement will initially run for three years and seeks to boost cooperation in cultural development, artistic creation, publishing, research and reflection on culture, exchanges of exhibitions and promotion of arts and handicrafts, the Mexico City Culture Secretariat said in a statement.

 

The agreement was signed on Tuesday at the Oriente Factory of Arts and Trades, or Faro, by Mexico City Culture Secretary Eduardo Vazquez Martin, Spanish Ambassador to Mexico Luis Fernandez Cid de las Alas, Telefonica Mexico Foundation deputy director Nidia Chavez and CCEMx managing director Carlos Ruiz.

 

“The agreement stems from the idea that the government of Mexico City believes that democratic coexistence implies the full exercise of cultural rights and views culture as a pillar in development,” the secretariat said.

 

The first project under the agreement was the creation of the Digital Citizenship Laboratory, a community-building program aimed at fostering learning and the development of digital skills, as well as the promotion of educational innovation through workshops, conferences and activities targeting children and teenagers.

 

The lab will work to narrow the digital divide and educate the citizens of the 21st century, the CCEMx said in a statement.

 

The project is expected to reach more than 4,000 young people, Ruiz said.
