Hamaiketako (lunch in Basque) are Saturday mornings in the company of local artists with time and space to share. The idea is to create a space for unhurried conversation, to get to know each other, to exchange concerns, to dare to ask questions… In short, to escape from the “student-teacher” discourse and enjoy a morning with Vicente Paredes and Susana Blasco around a table and a hamaiketako.
