Festival "Romerias de Mayo"


The project appears in 1994 and is associated to a religious ceremony established among the population of the city of Holguin in the north-east part of the country. It is a festival which gathers young artists, intellectuals and cultural promoters from dozens of countries, in order to transform the city into a crossroad of youth art where the protagonists would be poets, troubadours, groups of rock and rap, folk groups, plastic arts artists from the most traditionnal or naive to the executors of performances, to occupy the streets, the parks, the cultural institutions in order to express themselves in important meetings of social reflexion and cultural transfer. To these activities, we should add the concerts, the exhibitions, the theoretical events and the stagings which will take place. T
This year, the festival is dedicated to the city of Toronto, Canada.
