This panel discussion will feature a revealing conversation with three of Latin America’s most visionary cultural leaders: Sandra Meluk, Programming Director of Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo, Bogota (Colombia); Alberto Ligaluppi, General Director of the Complejo Teatral de Buenos Aires (Argentina); Danilo Santos de Miranda, Regional Director of SESC São Paulo (Brazil); and Margaret Ayers, President of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation (USA). The event will be moderated by NY1's Patrick Pacheco.

The discussion will center on the missions and visions that guide each director’s curatorial process; the inclusion of different artistic points of view in the programming of each institution; the institutional models that each director seeks as cultural manager; audience access policies implemented by each institution; and the mechanisms for public and private support that allow each institution to carry out their tasks.

This event is the culmination of the second edition of the ICEP, following TeatroStageFest´s two week tour of Amarillo by Teatro Linea de Sombra in Colombia, Brazil and Argentina, and the presentation of Amarillo in New York (October 18-20).
