Throughout the year, he added, "the Foundation opens its doors to other creators, with special attention to the youngest, so they can show their work in different exhibitions and, this time, will also recover part of the story of Blanca with a original proposal ".

In addition, "it will pay special attention to people with disabilities thanks to its increasingly popular drawing contest."

Likewise, the photographic exhibition 'Vivan los novios ... de Blanca' has been prepared, in which photographs, dresses and old objects dating from the 70s, donated by the people of Blanqueños, are collected, through which we invite you to remember one of the most important days in the life of many local residents.
