Cuba Celebrates World Radio Day

Translation by Ernesto Gutierrez
Havana. - On the occasion of the World Radio Day, February 13, representatives of several generations of professionals will debate on the progress and challenges of this medium in Cuba.

The exchange will take place at Casa Carmen Montilla, in this capital, which hosts the exhibition Sintonia de un Patrimonio (Tuning Heritage), by the plastic artist Maikel Herrera.

The purpose of the celebration is to highlight the power of the radio as a platform to disseminate information, educate, encourage diversification of contents, as well as to protect local cultures and languages.

World Radio Day is on February 13. It was proclaimed on November 3, 2011 by UNESCO's 36th General Conference and each year Cuba organizes a number of activities sponsored by the Regional Office of Culture for Latin America and Caribbean with headquarters in Havana.
