Morón de la Frontera, Spain – The Foro Cultural Flamenco “Morón 2004” was founded on March 19th in the city of Morón de la Frontera (Seville, Spain) as a non-profit organization which hopes to cover the cultural need of preserving the art of flamenco in the city.Twenty-four founding members, including flamenco-followers and professional artists associated with flamenco, participated in the founding assembly wherein the statutes were unanimously approved and presented.
The Foro Cultural Flamenco “Morón 2004” comes into being with the intention of continuity, and hopes to fill a cultural vacuum via the collection and safeguarding of this city’s flamenco heritage, supporting and projecting this heritage in order to contribute to the development and promotion of its values.
One of the Foro’s principal objectives is the creation of a Flamenco Cultural Center where a Program of Activities can be developed and implemented, not only among the citizens of Moron, but within the flamenco community at large. Activities designed to promote and support professionals and local amateurs, uncover new talents and encourage study and investigation of the history of flamenco in Morón de la Frontera will be the backbone of the Program.
The necessary steps have been taken to formally request the use of adequate
premises to serve as headquarters for the Cultural Center where relevant material may be exhibited and the Program of Activities be developed.
