…beyond our team, ISLAS is also our friends and colleagues.
After many years visiting Cuba and being part of various artistic communities on the Island, it was during the context of Havana Biennial edition in 2015, for which Ximena Holuigue emerged as an official contributor to the Canadian artistic representation in the XII events edition.
ISLAS was then officially born in 2016, from a deep love and passion to tell the narratives of many cuban talents met throughout the years, connecting creatives from abroad to experience the Island “beyond the beach” and building long-term cultural bridges.
With each project, it implemented the strong belief that through community building and dialogue, positive impact can happen for everyone.
Five years later, ISLAS has now evolved into a team of 5 partners to reach new opportunities and continue working on our main purpose promoting cultural exchange experiences with a positive social impact in Cuban artistic communities, based in Cuba and/or abroad.
As we are entering a new and exciting era into a new world, we invite you to be part of our evolving story and upcoming adventures ahead.
