The Prince Bernhard Culture Fund Caribbean Region is awarding it’s Culture Prize to Instituto Buena Bista (IBB), Curacao in a ceremony on February 17, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at IBB. This prize is awarded to persons or organizations that display explicit initiative and efforts for culture and/or nature conservation in the Dutch Caribbean islands. Congratulations to IBB!
The Instituto Buena Bista, Curacao Center for Contemporary Art, IBB, started in 2006 as an artists initiative with the goal to create a solid platform for art and art education. As an art institute that offers preparatory training for young talents, the IBB deals with all the aspects of art and art education that make a follow up to an art academy or creative schooling possible. The educational components don’t limit themselves to the students but also cover a broad area of the Curacao and Caribbean art towards the local society. The social engagement and added value of art for the society is also very present in the IBB structure. Being situated on the premises of the Capriles psychiatric clinic is not only a statement of the social engagement of the IBB but also a reflection of the concepts that IBB strives to achieve as well; collaboration, exchange and development.
