Now, with this hot summer, perhaps the Circuito (as the organizers of the FIVAC named their headquarters) is one of the best cultural options that the city has (and not only due to the air conditioning).

It is opened from wednesday to friday from 9:00am to 12:00pm and from 3:00pm to 8:00pm and saturdays and sundays from 9:00am to 12:00pm and from 7:00pm to 10:00pm; and you can go there to consult digital bibliography, updated audiovisual or printed materials related to the art of the new media.

Also, you can enjoy three new audiovisual expositions that will be in the Pixel Gallery: the Muestra de Animación Cubana until July 17th, an exposition of International Videoart that will be opened next July 17th and La Otra Naturaleza II, an exhibit of technology and new media that will be premiered next August, Saturday 15th.

If you have kids older than five years old, you should take them all saturday mornings to the Circuito since it turns into a lab for child creation in their workshop of new media. There, children can learn about robotics, animation and audiovisual filmmaking.

If you are a person that likes celebrating anything, you can count on FIVAC: July 21st, International Dogs Day and there will be a children's parade of mascot costumes to select the funniest and the most original; July 25th at 3:00 pm, the Orange Day or Diversity Day; August 3rd, International Watermelon Day with drawing contest and August 9th the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples.
