While we were preparing our XVII edition of Noche de Música y Arte, the Covid-19 pandemic broke out making it necessary to reimagine an event with the same objective.Thus Octubre Cultural was born – a month long Arts Festival entirely online that embodied the spirit of Noche de Música y Arte. With workshops and talks on a wide variety of cultural subjects, the event attracted a broad audience from all over the world since everything was held via Zoom. The online Peruvian art exhibit and sale offered options for a wide range of tastes and budgets that many took advantage of.
We were also proud to host an exclusive live performance, via Zoom, with our friend and supporter, Jean Pierre Magnet for our Inauguration Celebration.
Pierina Less performed live during the pandemic and led us in a fun packed Zoom dance party for the Closing Fiesta! Despite the pandemic AWLC was able to maintain its financial support of the Instituto Pedagógico de Monterrico and Enseña Perú, through a unique cultural program for learning and enjoyment.
We are in the early stages of planning this year's online event, follow us on Facebook for updates and details. We look forward to returning to Noche de Música y Arte in 2022 with a grand gala in person event to celebrate our 100 th anniversary.
