The purpose of the event was to analyze, share and discuss knowledge and experiences related to cultural management in the current context from the academic-university point of view in Latin America. More than 100 people attended, including professors, students, and the general audience.
Fernando Vicario Leal, who has a Master's Degree in Advanced Ibero-American Studies from the Faculty of Political Sciences of the Complutense University of Madrid, gave the keynote conference in which he explained to the audience the beginnings of cultural management, its development, and the challenges currently faced by managers.

The host countries held two cultural activities.

The second one was a short concert by the Mixe Soprano Maria Reyna, native from Oaxaca, who has dedicated herself to disseminating the native languages of Mexico using her voice to do so.
There were three panels of analysis and discussions on various topics. The first was with the participation of 7 university lecturers from Mexico and Colombia and was entitled "Training in Cultural Management: a perspective from the teaching work." In the second, 9 Mexican and Colombian students participated with the title "The Future of Cultural Management: A perspective from the student experience."
This activity stood out for the level of analysis of the students, their excellent mastery of the topics, and the vision they have of their professional future.
