At the Manuel Galich Hall of that Havana’s institution, the event devoted its spaces during three days to the resilience and creation in scenarios of the Covid-19 pandemic, the study on cultural heritage and the virtual space as an alternative to the limitations imposed by Covid-19.

Thursday’s agenda includes a research on permaculture as a theoretical and practical tool for the creation of sustainable human settlements, specifically from the experience in this nation, by sociologist Jennifer Portelles.

The event also includes a lecture on the regional educational scenarios, the presence of the academia and the cultural management, especially the teaching of Art History in times of pandemic at the University of Havana, with experts Odette Bello and Jorge Luis Marrero.

The colloquium also proposes an approach to the Latin American network of students of that discipline and their experiences in digital platforms, with Latin American professionals from the University of Costa Rica and the higher educational center of La Plata, in Argentina.

Finally, the program includes a debate on the documentary video “Belkis Ayon: Grabado de desasosiego” (Belkis Ayon: Engraving of Unrest), by renowned Uruguayan researcher, professor and filmmaker Juanamaria Cordones-Cook, dedicated to the Cuban painter and academic.

The documentary makes visible essential aspects of the work by that prominent representative of 20th-century Cuban art and exposes “her paradoxical, charismatic, warm and enigmatic personality,” according to the social media’s pages dedicated to Ayon.
