The event is held under the motto "Women, indigenous peoples and popular crafts in the evolution and development of Latin American and Caribbean art and culture"

The Latin American and Caribbean Week (SALC), organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Latin American-Caribbean Group (Grulac), will be full of cultural proposals and this year one of the themes is aimed at women.

Under the motto “Women, indigenous peoples and popular crafts in the evolution and development of Latin American and Caribbean art and culture,” the event, in which Venezuela has participated since last Monday, will be held from the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France, until this Friday, June 7.

The Venezuelan delegation is led by the country's ambassador to the multilateral organization, Rodulfo Pérez, who will be in charge of offering a few words at the Latin American and Caribbean Week.

In addition, the dissertation “Transformation of Mentalities for Gender Equality” will be presented along with other topics such as the Cultural and Creative Industry to preserve ancestral knowledge, according to the account on the X social network of the representation of Venezuela at UNESCO.
