With the participation of representatives from over 15 countries, the 26th edition of the Ibero-American Culture Festival will be held from October 24 to 28 in Holguin, Cuba.
From its traditional headquarters, the Casa de Iberoamerica (House of Ibero-America), the event will meet through its different digital platforms, an alternative that has demonstrated the ability of culture to overcome challenges and adapt to the new circumstances imposed by Covid-19, explained Eduardo Avila, President of the Organizing Committee.
In statements to the press, Avila, who is also Doctor of Sciences, detailed that Mexico, Spain, Canada, Chile, Panama and other nations have brought recordings, articles and different presentations for the various scenarios included in the Festival, including the Ibero-American Congress of Thought.
Culture as a factor of resilience, is the theme that has convened national and foreign researchers to participate in this scientific space, deemed as the backbone of this annual event with Latin American and Caribbean roots.
Precisely, an essential purpose of the 2020 edition is to exchange about the artistic processes that contribute to safeguarding the most indigenous traditions of the peoples of the region, he pointed out.
