Double graduation
The YUCUNET project’s general objective is to offer the tools for the creation of an educational, research and work network in Contemporary Art in the Yucatán-Cuba region. It also aspires to contribute to the formation of two specific and parallel degrees in Mérida and Havana, or, ideally, an International Double Degree, on Management of Contemporary Art and Cultures that will be imparted in Mexico and Cuba through e-teaching and e- learning.

Academic innovation
As a starting point for curriculum development, we rely on the concept of “multilateral construction”. It will be based on it that two specialized art higher education plans will be designed together, one for the UADY University of Mérida, and the other for the ISA University of Havana, with the intention that they can be merged into a common framework.

Collaborative network
The project aims to create a future collaborative network between the partners. It is also about starting a work process between American and European universities that, with the support of independent professionals and of recognized prestige, take art students out of university classrooms to put them to collaborate with experts in the field of museums , cultural management and communities and civil society groups.
