Kiba Kreyol '99 International Festival
7/31 to 8/3, 1999, Havana

NOTE: THIS HAS BEEN CANCELLED!  Bannzil Kreyol Kiba did not manage to get registered and recognized as an NGO by the Cuban government, which they need to do before having an international event.

Bannzil Kreyol Kiba, a cultural institution sponsored by the Caribbean Association of Cuba, invites you to the "KIBA KREYOL 99 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL". The objective of the festival is to promote a cultural exchange among those countries which speak Creole as part of their cultural and spiritual richness.

The meeting will take place from 7/31 to 8/3, 1999 in the Caribbean Association of Cuba in the city of Havana.   Participants will include all those interested in Creole theatre, dance, music, plastic arts and literature. This event will be the second year for the festival in Cuba (see details of the First Kiba Kreyol Festival) and will include round tables, magistral classes and commissions. Participants will include specialists and students who will discuss and debate the influence of Creole in socio-cultural relations in the Caribbean area.

REGISTRATION FEE

Foreign Delegates US $50
Foreign Students US 40
