Belgian culture lovers are enjoying the many options that Havana’s Historian Office and the European country’s embassy in the Cuban capital have brought and organized for the occasion from November 8 through 16.
The Belgian Culture Festival’s main venue is Old Havana’s Vitrina de Valonia (Wallonie Showcase), offering a broad program of activities, such as jazz and classical music concerts, comics or cartoons exhibitions.
The Belgian cultural festival is also holding a workshop called Lutherie Sauvage (Wild Musical Instrument Making) for teenagers of the José Martí Experimental Junior High School, taught by Belgian instrument maker and musician, Max Vandervorst, who is also set to give a concert along with the students who took part in the workshop. The instruments created at the workshop are being made of recycled material.
The library of the Wallonie Showcase will also hold an exhibit showing the cartoons of the book Soñar La Habana (Dreaming Havana) by Belgian cartoonist, Etienne Schreder, and participants in the cooperation project Cartoon and Animation Production, sponsored by Havana’s Historian Office and Wallonie-Bruxelles Internacional.
A concert by the Cuban female chamber orchestra Camerata Romeu is also scheduled for Old Havana’s Saint Francis of Assisi Concert Hall on November 16, 6:00 p.m., featuring music by Belgian and Cuban composers.
