Today we are highlighting 2016 Fellow Alejandro Marrero, Literary advisor/ Art manager at Estudio Teatral de Santa Clara. For those who attended the New York 2016 ISPA Congress, you may recall Alejandro marked his first day at ISPA by sharing a high-energy regional update on his country of Cuba!
We caught up with Alejandro and heard all about a notable partnership that emerged from his time at the Congress. Having connected with ISPA member Barbash Arts Consulting Services, Alejandro and Cathy Barbash have since co-produced an exchange residency, bringing traditional Lakota performing Kevin Locke to Santa Clara and Havana. This exchange has produced an ongoing relationship and discussions are already underway for new projects involving both Cuban and American artists and organizations!
In 2016, ISPA brought 46 Fellows from around the world to the New York Congress. We know it's impossible to meet all these emerging leaders on site do we're highlighting the 2016 ISPA Fellows in features via the members-only monthly newsletter Network and on the website.
