As part of the activities organized for this opening, some of the attending audience took part in a guided tour, where they were introduced by guides from MiCultura to the new facilities that bring together all artistic disciplines in a single complex.

“The largest school of artistic education in the country, at the service of the population!” Nito Cortizo.




Families enjoyed a cultural artistic show that included the talent of live artists such as the group Somos Paralelo, Rómulo Castro and the Grupo Tuira, Combos Nacionales, folk dance academies, and the musical talent of young people and children who are part of the Youth Orchestras and Choirs Network of Panama.




Panamanian cuisine with delicious dishes by the chefs from the “Sabores del Barrio” program were available.
