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 days prior to the Awards Ceremony, which will be held on 25th 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 Siero starting Monday, 21st October. Talks, exhibitions, golf clinics and working meetings will be among the events featuring the laureates. 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 better known 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.

This series of events is sponsored by Banco Sabadell-Herrero, ThyssenKrupp, the EDP Foundation and the Regional Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Principality of Asturias.

In addition to the programme of events during "Awards Week", the Prince of Asturias Foundation has scheduled the screening of a cycle of films in collaboration with the University of Oviedo and the EDP Foundation to mark the bestowal of the Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts on Michael Haneke ("Michael Haneke. Film Forum") featuring the Austrian director's complete filmography. The films will be shown in Oviedo, Gijón and Avilés between 14th and 22nd October.
