The Prince of Asturias Foundation has designed an extensive cultural programme that includes the participation of the Prince of Asturias Laureates in various activities during the week of the Awards Ceremony, which will be held on 24th October in the Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo. 

The programme, called “Awards Week”, includes 20 cultural activities in all, to be held in Oviedo, Gijón, Avilés and Villaviciosa starting Tuesday, 21st October. The events featuring the laureates will include working meetings, exhibitions and talks. These cultural events will also count on the participation of professionals, academics and prominent figures from different fields and disciplines from both Spain and abroad.

Since 1996, the Foundation has scheduled different activities in diverse locations in Asturias aimed at making the laureates and their contributions to the world of science, culture or any other field in which they work more accessible to society at large. The laureates will combine the activities with diverse meetings with the press, the schedule for which will be announced in the coming days.

The Regional Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Principality of Asturias, the Principality of Asturias Regional Parliament, Oviedo, Gijón, Avilés and Villaviciosa Municipal Councils and the University of Oviedo have all collaborated in the organization of this series of events.
