Cultural and Scientific Agenda
The Cultural Agenda is a non-profit cultural proposal, with an inclusive spirit, which aims to be a space for reflection and recreation where students and the community in general can approach not only books but also authors, other readers and exponents of artistic and academic disciplines in general. It includes writers’ training workshops, spaces for reflection, conferences, seminars, cycles, film clubs, talks on rock, opera, plastic arts, history, philosophy and literature. In this way, the Gimnasio Moderno ensures the legitimate right of access to culture, human development and coexistence, by facilitating the city’s progress towards the inclusion of all groups and improving the quality of life of Bogota’s people.
One of the central events in our cultural agenda is the meeting of writers “The Lines of your Hand”, which in 2019 reached its twelfth version. The purpose of this meeting is to bring authors and readers closer together, thus allowing the formation of a public with a critical spirit and criteria. This meeting takes place within the school life, but open to the public, free and inclusive, in which the author confronts his texts directly with their addressees.
