Guía de Isora is a place of history and legend, but also oral tradition. With this entanglement of dreams and reality, our people’s memory will be recovered. The words of our senior citizens and those people with cherished social and cultural experiences that shouldn’t be lost will be celebrated through the programme “Isora, por vía oral”, by a team to be coordinated by writer and playwright Cirilo Leal, and made up of audiovisual professionals and students of Guía de Isora.
Isora, por vía oral, came about with the aim of creating a rich archive of life lessons preserving the popular wisdom of our neighbours in time, with the breadth of a social-cohesion project born from the area’s young and old coming together.
