The initiative, funded by the European Union and promoted by the United Nations Fund for Education, Science and Culture (Unesco) currently creates cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of Cuba and the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana

In statements to Prensa Latina, Tatiana Villegas-Zamora, specialist at UNESCO’s Regional Office for Latin America, explained the promising mechanisms she is activating to transform the island into a training center for arts.

When working with Transcultura, institutions of great value and prestige appear, like the International School of Film and TV in San Antonio de los Baños, the Institute of Art and the Institute of Design, referents in their specialty, she said.

Especially, all academic institutions linked to the Office of the Historian of Havana contribute with their knowledge in the restoration and management of material heritage, with encouragement for the workshop schools, the San Gerónimo de La Habana University College and the future Santa Clara School for the Arts and Crafts of Restoration of Cuba and the Caribbean.

They will be the main partners for Transcultura in the Caribbean area. As members, they will provide on-line and on-site training spaces. It is about creating exchange opportunities and supporting creators to enter the professional world of scholarships, calls for first works, or incubator systems, Villegas said.

Currently, the initiative develops all expressions of cultural industries, both film and plastic arts, theater, design and music.

The latter focuses its most recent call to the countries of the region to pick jazz groups that will be able to join the agenda of the 37 International Jazz Plaza Festival 2022.
