VENUE – Cas di Cultura Theatre and Cultural Center

Cas di Cultura new Logo 2015Cas di Cultura, Aruba’s theater and cultural center has been providing the Aruban community with the chance to practice and perform their art since 1958. Through its 57 years of existence many generations have developed their artistry using its facilities and hundreds of thousands have enjoyed the performing arts and other cultural expressions. Stichting Schouwburg Aruba, a non-profit foundation, owns and manages Cas di Cultura and has worked hard to ensure the proper maintenance of the building for its good use by the Aruban cultural life.

Currently Cas di Cultura is having a National Fundraising Campaign “Nos Teatro Transformando” (Our Theater in Transformation) of which the first step was our new logo launch. The campaign will last till October 24th, 2015 and its mission is to raise funds to help finance its new architectural Master Plan, entailing renovation, repurposing and expansion of this monumental building. Not only is the venue in dire need of renovations but our goal is to attain a higher quality as well, to be able to offer the Aruban community, artistically, culturally and generally, a better more efficient cultural facility, with great service as well. Being the only proscenium theater in the Dutch Caribbean it is a true treasure to preserve. It is a crucial platform to keep Arts and Culture alive in our community.

Cas di Cultura in 1960, then known as ‘Cultureel Centrum’ before they gave it a name in Papiamento.
