Art Rules Curaçao goes Pietermaai
WILLEMSTAD - Moving into a new location for its 3rd edition, Art Rules Curaçao will take place at Pietermaai’s newest Cultural hub, Kurá di Arte.
Kurá di Arte opened its doors back in April of 2015 as a non-governmental organization focusing on, what they define as “healthy development” of young Curaçaoan kids, through Arts Education. Since opening its doors, Kurá di Arte has become a home for several Art initiatives and organizations offering different opportunities for Artists and Educators to work, create and teach Art. One could say that Kurá di Arte is becoming one of the main conduits between creators, educators and Art practitioners in Pietermaai.
Sharing their vision, Art Rules Curaçao viewed the location and the purpose behind it to be a perfect match with the program. Kurá di Arte is not only a great facilitator for the fast growing in need of more space Art Rules, artistically, both Kurá di Arte and Art Rules foresee creative opportunities and future collaborations.
“Art Rules completely matches the goals we have with Kurá di Arte. We believe that its presence will contribute to the innovation of Kurá di Arte as an attractive, active and sustainable Community Arts Centre” in the neighborhood. As stated by the founder.
This move and the possible future opportunities that are being developed could be leading towards a stronger presence of Art Rules on the island with initiatives being developed throughout the year.
For this summer the program will kick off on July 25th including the 2 full weeks of workshops and the Art Rules Final Showcase, which will also be held at Kurá di Arte on August 5th. The final showcase is expected to become a major extraordinary showcase with performances, exhibitions and live music. Tickets will be on sale at Kurá di Arte from July 11th for just 18 florins.
