The Santa Lucia International Festival, which started on the 11th of October in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, has reaffirmed its position as one of the largest cultural events in Latin America with a 27-day program that brought over 300 artists to the homes of spectators across the globe.
“The Festival, which has championed access to culture as a universal right, due to the positive effect it represents on people’s mental and emotional health,” said Lorenia Canavati von Borstel, President of the Festival.
“The cultural sector has been one of the most affected by the pandemic, most activities have been canceled or in the best case, they are open to 30% of their capacity” added Canavati von Borstel. “The intention of the Festival is to reactivate the economy of the sector and channel all resources to national and local talent.”
Health officials are saying that we are entering a second wave of the pandemic and are urging people to stay home when possible. “We are proud to be able to offer your readers the possibility to experience our festival and provide cultural entertainment for them.”
