For the Merida City Council, stimulating artistic creation and cultural management is one of the initiatives that needs to be maintained in force in these times of social confinement due to COVID-19. Hence, the “Art at Home” (ARTE EN CASA) program will continue to offer incentives to the community of local creators during the month of June.
Through the Culture Directorate, the selected Art at Home projects and the Diffusion of Audiovisual Materials through social networks with artistic and cultural content will allow the cultural life of Mérida to be enjoyed from home, taking care of health and contributing to family coexistence and strengthening the social fabric in the municipality.
A total of 334 projects were selected supporting the creativity and talent of artists in which the love of art is reflected in its different manifestations.

Women continue to be the group that most closely follows initiatives and social networks have become the main tool for cultural enjoyment from different digital platforms.
