“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing the Biennial of the Americas Festival to Denver and we want Colorado’s Latino population to be a big part of what we are doing.”  said FloraJane DiRienzo, Festival Director, Biennial of the Americas in a recent meeting with Latin Life Denver Media.

“We truly want them to come enjoy and participate in this year’s festival that will feature more than 30 international speakers from 15 different countries.  They will all be coming to Denver for four days of diverse programming that will feature art exhibitions, musical performances, clínica workshops and speaker events that explore the theme of “Empathy in Action.”  Latin Life Denver is a proud Media Sponsor

BOTA_2013_DAY4_63The Biennial understands that strong partnerships begin with strong relationships. Our cultural programs celebrate the shared heritage of the Americas, recognizing that our closest neighbors are also out strongest trading partners and closest friends. We host international summits to find cohesion in culture, and gather to celebrate that culture every other year here in Denver.

The Biennial of the Americas is an international fusion of art, music, culture and thought-leadership built to unify North and South America. We’re committed to convening and connecting leaders from the business, academic, civic and cultural sectors who make solutions to our shared challenges a reality. Formed around the transformational idea that the North-South axis across the Americas is a vast and largely untapped resource for business, cultural and social opportunities, we assemble the most innovative leaders in the western hemisphere for the only festival in the world focused exclusively on the Americas.    LEARN MORE
