September is a busy month for Magdalenas. Right now many are en route to


Madrid for the festival "A Solas", 3-8 September; information in English

available on the web site.


Following the festival, a meeting to begin to plan the Magdalena Archive

Project will take place in Aberystwyth, Wales (12-13 September). To

date, physical material has been gathered in various places by people

involved in the project, and the Archive

<> section of the web

site has provided a chronology, links to festival web sites, and digital

material. The question is how to organise all of the material – physical

and digital – in such a way that it is accessible to artists,

researchers and interested people, and so that it can continue to evolve

as the project grows. Read more about the MAP project here


And we are delighted to announce the release of "Magdalena", a film

produced by Jill Greenhalgh and Sara Penrhyn Jones. This 30-minute

documentary draws on footage from two festivals in 2011 (the 25th

anniversary in Wales, and Magdalena Sin Fronteras in Cuba) to

historicise the project and convey something of the spirit which has

kept the network relevant in a changing environment. The full

documentary is available to view online, with information available in
