Artistic treasure chest.
The latest in art and drama is shown in this cultural centre created by the Fundación Sociedad Femenina de Cultura nearly half a century ago, with the aim of teaching and promoting cultural movements, both Ecuadorian and International ones alike. The exhibition hall usually houses samples of folk handicrafts, contemporary jewellery and fine art, while the Experimental Room is the scene of competitions and international festivals of theatre, which not only represents local companies but also serves as a workshop for exchanges with artists from other countries. If the Art world generally interests you then this place and its programme are a must on your itinerary. Amongst other gems, you will be able to choose from concerts by the Theatre's resident Chamber Orchestra to capoeira competitions, conferences and painting workshops which are open to the public and even the Ballet School's dance company's rehearsals, that are also take place at this centre.
