This program aims to provide emerging talents with the resources, mentorship, and opportunities they need to refine their craft, gain industry insights, and make meaningful connections. By supporting this cause, you are actively investing in the growth and development of the next generation of artists and fostering a more vibrant and diverse artistic community.

Absolutely! While the primary focus is on showcasing arts and culture, the event also serves as an excellent platform for attendees to mingle, share ideas, and forge connections with fellow art enthusiasts, professionals, artists, and performers. Moreover, one of our key objectives is to bridge the gap between the business and entrepreneurial community with the local art and creative sector. By attending, you have a unique opportunity to network across industries, fostering collaborations that can drive both artistic and business innovation.

The dress code is a fusion of cocktail and tropical – think Havana Nights meets James Bond. Channel the elegance of a Bond film with the vibrant and lively spirit of Havana. Whether you lean towards sophisticated evening wear or vibrant tropical attire, ensure you capture the essence of both themes for a perfect blend.
