ISLA 2022
Navigating futures 

Ireland is both lighthouse and port, the starting point and destination of continuous adventures of kinship, history and literature that have seeded our memories and our outlook on the world. This endless and boundless dialogue brings us now to the 11th edition of ISLA, the Irish Spanish Latin American Festival, to celebrate the fact that Instituto Cervantes is still, now more than ever, home to those of us who share the languages and dreams of many shores: those of the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and always, always, the peaceful Pacific. The last ferry of novelist Domingo Villar is a beautiful metaphor of the journey we call life. Come and sail with us from 13th to 15th October: we’ll be expecting you.
