Cumulus in Cuba in 2016 in the 1st innovation conference

Cumulus was also present in the end of 2016 in Havana as invited by CITMA, the Ministry of Technology, Science and Innovation of Cuba, by the Minister Elba Rosa Pérez Montoya and Director Armando Rodriquez Battista. Cumulus board member Mariana Amatullo and Eija Salmi kept there the Cumulus flag high. During the week they also visited ONDI, the national designers´ association and the universities ISDI for design and ISA for the arts and the FAC Cultural Center in the city. Cumulus got also invited to ISA conference in March and ISDI´s design conference in June 2017 in Havana. During this visit they experienced the fantastic talent and passion of the academics, students and staff of all institutions and became more than just convinced of the high quality of the activities and development. During the conference, it was very inspiring to raise together with colleagues the flagship of Cuba; the creativity and quality of arts, design and media of your country among all those innovation conference participants from different disciplines. On behalf of Cumulus members and partners, it is a hope that both participants were able to inspire and share knowledge with these institutions. We wait for seeing the colleagues from Havana in Cumulus Kolding in 30 May – 2 June 2017!
