Promoting the tradition and identity of the people will be the main topic for debate in the event Memoria Nuestra, inserted in the International Festival of Artistic Youth Romerias de Mayo, which will take place in Holguin from May 2 to 8.
During these days the eastern city will become the Capital of Young Art, as the venue for the Festival organized by the Hermanos Saiz Association (AHS) gathers new creators from different regions of the world.

MSc. Yanelis Martinez, organizer of Memoria Nuestra, told the Cuban News Agency that the thematic lines of the Meeting will be related to the general idea of the Romerias.

In this regard, the debates will focus on the cultural formation of nations through the presentation of socio-cultural projects aimed at increasing artistic creation.

She highlighted the participation of foreign delegations in previous events and said they hope to achieve the same attendance in the 26th edition of the Festival of Youth Art in Cuba, next May.

The jury of Memoria Nuestra will be made up of prestigious professors from the University of Holguin, who will grant the Best Research Award, which consists of a diploma and cash prize, Martinez said.

Romerias de Mayo is one of the main cultural events of the so-called Cuban city of parks, in which the most autochthonous of each region of the world converges, especially young artists and cultural promoters.
