Art University Festival in June

More than 60 projects are expected to participate at the 7th Arts University Festival, scheduled for Havana, from May 30th through June 5th.

The art gathering will go beyond the premises and spaces of the prestigious Cuban arts educational center to reach other scenarios of the Cuban capital. Students, professors and Arts University alumni will hold concerts, book launching and presentations and present community projects, theater and dance performances, fine arts and design exhibitions. Lectures, master lectures and workshops also make up the event’s program.

This year’s festival is dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the Arts University, formerly known as Higher Institute for the Arts –ISA-, the 90th birthday of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and the three decades of the Hermanos Saíz Young Artists and Performers Association (AHS). This year’s arts gathering includes the 16th edition of Imago, scheduled to screen audiovisual materials produced by the Arts University’s Audiovisual Art and Media School, the 18th Musicalia competition and the 2nd Young Conservationist-Restorer Festival.

Mella Theater, Cuba’s Ludwig Foundation, the Havana based Casa de las Américas cultural institution, the Infanta multipurpose movies theater, the Cuban Writers and Artists Association Villena Hall, the Pabellón Cuba Exhibition Hall and the cultural complexes Vicente Revuelta, Bertoldt Brecht and Raquel Revuelta, as well as the Cuban Arts Factory and Kcho Estudio Romerillo will be the event’s main venues. The encounter is set to generate spaces for dialogue among young writers and artists and show the most valuable art projects derived from the teaching and learning processes of the Arts University and its community nature.
