For the first time, Camagüey was the venue for the Nicolás Guillén International Festival and Colloquium, an event that during its XIII edition had the participation of more than 40 speakers and guests from Canada, the United States, Colombia and Cuba.
In the meeting, dedicated to the 120th anniversary of the birth of the National Poet, the issue of racism and its current implications in the Cuban reality was addressed, despite the campaigns that for more than sixty years tried to eliminate this scourge.
Professor and researcher Margarita Mateo Palmer opened the theoretical program with the conference “The nearby and unknown island. Presence of Haiti in the work of Nicolás Guillén”. It also had the participation of specialists such as Professor Denia García Ronda and researcher Emilio Jorge Rodríguez, among others.
On the other hand, the XII ArteCómic Conference 2022 stood out, a unique event of its kind in Cuba that was held at the Santa Cecilia Convention Center.
The proposal, which returned after two years of inactivity, had an extensive academic program that included talks, exhibitions, drawing workshops, book presentations and a detailed analysis of the comic strip and its evolution on the Island.
Focused once again on the enjoyment of the family, especially children and older adults, the Office of the Historian of the City of Camagüey (OHCC) added two new options to its summer offers, including visits to the Railway Museum and the Interpretation Center.
