The Simon Bolivar Cultural Centre
The construction of the Simon Bolívar Cultural Centre in Downtown Kingston is intended to strengthen the cross-cultural links between the Caribbean and Latin America and aids in the re-establishment of Downtown Kingston (Parade) as the Cultural District of the city.
Simon Bolívar is a hero in much of Latin America and Hugo Chavez invoked his name for his Bolivian Revolution. It is anticipated that the Centre will open in 2014 and it will showcase art, artifacts, and other bits of culture representing the cross-cultural linkage.
The centre will also provide activities and programmes targeting young people.
