An appointment for reflection

  • Who are we? What we want? Where are we going? With these concerns as the driving force and after the experience of the pandemic that has renewed awareness of our fragility and the state of uncertainty that characterizes us, we propose an annual meeting for reflection aimed at citizens, individuals and corporate, which pose and demand a critical look that allows us to understand the keys to the world in which we live. And act -individually and collectively- accordingly.
  • In order to spread the ideas and debates of the moment, in the midst of the confusion generated by the digital commotion, and to help citizens make them their own, Dénia intends to be the scene of an annual Humanities Festival. By convening representative figures of thought, science, economy and the arts, the Festival seeks to share ideas and experiences, in spaces and formats aimed at a wide audience, who feel challenged by the desire think, create, imagine and live together.
  • The idea will be developed from the different genres of humanistic culture: lectures and debates, but also exhibitions and other forms of artistic creation. It will feature prominent figures of humanistic, economic and scientific thought, but also actors and creators from various disciplines, ensuring that ideas are deployed through different formats.
Cultural capital of the Mediterranean Cultural capital of the Mediterranean

Cultural capital of the Mediterranean

The city of Dénia preserves the legacy of its thousand-year-old history, the cradle of peoples and cultures for more than 2,000 years. As the capital of the Marina Alta region and within its status as a Creative City by UNESCO, Dénia today continues to have an important cultural activity, but the city yearns the cultural luster of its taifa from a thousand years ago and aspires to recover its place as a beacon of culture and thought in the Mediterranean.

From October 27 to 29, Dénia Festival de les Humanitats will once again make the city of Dénia the epicenter of critical thought, reflection and the Humanities the Mediterranean.
