Arts & Transformation
At the Creativity and Culture Unit, we use art, culture, and creativity as tools for communication, and to foster a culture of innovation within the IDB. Furthermore, we promote and strengthen the Bank’s strategic role in showcasing Latin American and Caribbean culture through our exhibitions, IDB’s Art Collection, cultural events, and special programs.
One of our most notable initiatives in the cultural sector has been assembling an art collection that reflects the cultural diversity of IDB member countries and serve as educational, promotional and equity vehicles for those wishing to learn about the region’s deep artistic roots.
Explore our multidisciplinary exhibitions featuring contemporary artists from Latin America and the Caribbean, addressing the region’s development challenges through the lens of creativity and culture.
Our collection seeks to positively impact development by harnessing creativity and highlighting the power of art as an effective tool for innovative thinking.
