Dunedin – With a total of 80 photographs, kicked off the two-week photo exhibition “Cuba through Kiwi Eyes”, having the Business School of the University of Otago as its venue. The exhibition was inaugurated by the Ambassador of Cuba, Mario Alzugaray and the dean of the Business School, Robin Gauld.
During the inauguration, the Cuban diplomat highlighted the importance that Cuba attaches to its links with New Zealand, as an example of the relationship between two small and distant nations, which have managed to maintain reciprocal attention, with practical results in bilateral cooperation and on issues of mutual interest. He also thanked the School of Business of the University of Otago for hosting and coordinating this event, promoting greater ties between Cuba and New Zealand.
This photographic exhibition was exhibited in Wellington last March, as part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and New Zealand. The exhibition is the result of a contest launched last November by the Cuban Embassy, through which New Zealanders who had visited our country were invited to send their contributions, receiving more than a thousand photographs.
The Embassy is taking steps to take this exhibition to Palmerston North and Rotorua, within the framework of the Latin American and Spain Film Festival, and the Cuban Festival of Aotearoa, events that are held respectively in these two cities. (Embacuba NZ).
