Museum week: #WordsForTheFutureMW

For several decades now, a slogan that has become common year after year has spread: that museums need changes and that these must continue to occur in the future so that these institutions continue to be significant in society, that is, for citizens, and citizens whom they represent and serve. The question of how they cope with changes is what has really given rise to interesting reflections in the field of museology. There is no single approach to such a complex issue, since it is made up of multiple layers that, in many cases, are difficult to couple.

Museum week: #ArtIsEverywhereMW

Every year, coinciding with the celebration of the Titirijai Festival (International Puppet Festival) in November, TOPIC shares the art of puppetry in various corners of Tolosa. In collaboration with the Merchants Association, we carry out this initiative which consists of decorating different establishments in the town with representative puppets from our collection so that the general public can appreciate the works outside the Museum premises.

  • Colorín is a puppet from San Sebastian. A glove doll that was born no less than 56 years ago in the basements of the old building of the Círculo Cultural y Ateneo Guipuzcoano, by the group Teatro de Cámara y Ensayo of the aforementioned entity, directed by José Luis Villarejo. Colorín was born out of the concern of the Board of Directors of said Athenaeum to do something to attract the sons and daughters of its partners to the "theater." Thus was born the Colorín puppet theater, whose hero gave the company its name. Colorín toured practically all the towns of Gipuzkoa and a large part of Biscay, Navarrese and Alava. He sometimes traveled to very rural places taking his adventures to the boys and girls. Together with his unconditional friends, she shared his plight, laughed, sang ... always coming out triumphant thanks to his disinterested help. After a long life of almost 50 years, the Tolosa International Puppet Center, TOPIC, is the place where it rests today along with many other puppets thanks to the generosity of Conchita Momeñe, widow of José Luis Villarejo and co-founder of the Company.
