About The El Quixote Festival:
The Festival’s initial intention is to celebrate the 400th anniversary and closing of Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra’s two books simply known now as “El Quijote”, while placing a special emphasis on artistic creations in the Spanish language. Genres such as visual arts, literature, opera, music, dance, theatre, film and gastronomy along with various academic events are programmed.
Additional goals are to broaden the artistic landscape in North Carolina, reach new and more diverse audiences and to build relationships, share knowledge, learn and build consensus.
About Artist Studio Project:
Artist Studio Project: Is a collaboration of artists working to help promote each other’s talents and art through various media forms. Artist Studio Project will team up artists on an intellectual endeavor that is creative in nature and by doing so give them a platform to create by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus. It is our belief that in particular, teams that work collaboratively can obtain greater resources, recognition and reward when facing competition for finite resources. ASP was created by Rafael A. Osuba who serves as its Artistic Director.
