As we are truly culture lovers; we have created #leborgabalacreativeproposal as a hashtag with the purpose of proposing and sharing cultural activities through our social media channels. The simple fact of visiting a well-known art show or just discovering any other unknown curious art exhibit is a huge and pleasant milestone to be shared with you.
Every Thursday from the previous month of March we are proposing and talking about cultural key initiatives that we already visited or at least that we would love to visit soon. As we also enjoy travelling, those proposals usually stand out by taking place in different spots and locations around the world.
So, in this post we are collecting all the suggestions that we have been recommending by now. Some of them may have already concluded, but many others still being available. You can already plan your next break holiday and book your favourite cultural activity.
