Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca

August 13, 2010

The Southern Caribbean Arts School (EDACS) and the Development Association of Puerto Viejo are excited to announce the dates for the 2010 Carnaval ArteViva festival in Puerto Viejo, Aug. 20 to 31.

This year’s event will include music, theater, dance, art exhibitions, sports tournaments, an art fair, street parades, carnival rides, gastronomical wonders, workshops, information about alternative medicines, presentations by school kids from Manzanillo to Puerto Viejo and more. For updates, follow www.arteviva-puertoviejo.com.

Luis Angel Castro, Santos y Zurdo and the best Southern Caribbean bands, including Kawa Vibrations and PlanB, are confirmed to perform. Other highlights will include famous puppet man Anselmo and the theatrical piece “Negra,” presented by the SpanishCulturalCenter.

The festival is made possible through the donations of people who are excited about preserving the culture and art of the Southern Caribbean.

EDACS is a nonprofit association whose mission is to bring educational opportunities to area youth by promoting pride in local culture, developing artistic abilities, providing the opportunity to participate in sport, and giving hope for a future of success. The association has organized free workshops benefiting more than 400 young people since 2006.

EDACS has also contributed to fixing the electrical and water systems in Puerto Viejo’s Casa de Cultura and has sponsored various mosaic art pieces and murals around town as well as other festivals, including the book festival and the alternative medicine fair.

All events at ArteViva are free – so why not make a donation? Any amount will be gratefully accepted. Donations may be made at Banco de Costa Rica to the accounts of Asociación EDACS/Escuela de Artes del Caribe Sur, 399-0000205-4 (dollars) or 399-0000204-6 (colones).
