Organizing an event can be a joyful and gratifying experience but it can certainly be stressful as well. Our bureau can guide you and give tips along the way to make your Cas di Cultura experience unforgettable. Before going on this journey with you, your date(s) must be set for the event and (eventual) set-ups and rehearsals. To make your event successful we also require all the technical info surrounding it. Call us for more info on how to make a booking. See here our rental prices in Arubian Florins.

INCBTR

What used to be Cas di Cultura’s ballet studio has been transformed into a creative hub where new talents are cultivated, innovative ideas are tested and experimental art is stimulated. As suggested by its name, which derived from the term ‘incubator’, the INCBTR is primarily a space where small-scale creative projects are developed and subcultures and sub-genres are appreciated. The 190 sq. ft. stage serves as an approachable platform for up and coming artists.
For many, the space is perceived as a playground where creatives can perfect their performances and production skills for a smaller audience prior to stepping on to the main stage. The platform also offers independent teachers a space to hold art classes and workshops at a low cost. Finally, INCBTR may also be used as a rehearsal space.
