Rhode Island Basque Club Euskara Classes
The Rhode Island Basque Club will organize Basque language courses in the Greater Boston area starting at the end of January in an effort to "foster and promote Basque culture in the New England region." They are hoping to serve members living in Massachusetts as well as attract others who may be interested in Basque culture. The course is free and available to anyone interested in learning. Classes will take place on Saturdays at the Robbins Library in Arlington (700 Massachusetts Ave, MA 02476) from January 25-June 23rd from 10:30-12:00pm in the Robbins Conference Room. Students will be required to pre-register via email at: email@example.com. For more information on the Rhode Island Basque club visit its website: www.ribasque.org.
Our friends at the New York Basque club have extended an invitation to an opening reception tomorrow, January 16th from 6-8pm, to Begoña Garma Iriarte's exhibit at the Agora Gallery (530 West 25th Street, Manhattan). Garma-Iriarte is an academically trained artist who creates work that plays on the relationship between object and viewer. For more information on the artist and exhibit here.
