The emblematic establishment wanted to strengthen its alliance with the María Batlle Foundation by launching this new initiative and gesture of solidarity aimed at encouraging the integration of vulnerable members of society and those with disabilities through education.

Following the creation of the “El Embajador around the world” prize at the beginning of the year (coinciding with the celebration of the 62nd anniversary of El Embajador, a Royal Hideaway Hotel) as an award that every 12th of February recognizes and rewards the work of people on both a national and international level whose projects are achieving integration and an impact on a social level, as well as encouraging the protection of the environment and promoting gender equality, the emblematic establishment wanted to strengthen its alliance with the María Batlle Foundation, co-organizer of the previous award and specialized in the development of the democratization of knowledge in the Dominican Republic, with the launching of the “El Embajador for integration” program.

On this occasion it is a series of conferences which share the objective of promoting and supporting integration. The first presentation chosen concerns “Cultural democratization” and is presented by a true expert in the field: Michel Lo Monaco, Cultural Democratization and Territorial Action Manager at the Louvre Museum in Paris (France), an institution which has signed a collaboration agreement with the Maria Batlle Foundation.

It is a real honor for our organization to have signed a collaboration agreement with the Louvre Museum, to be able to consult their experts and apply successful methods of creating cultural democracy in the Dominican Republic, in our education, culture and tourism, which is a real necessity” says the Dominican artist, president and founder of the Foundation, María Batlle.

During the presentation, which will take place on Wednesday June 27th at 9 o’clock in the Gran Embajador salon, Lo Monaco will explain how the Louvre, one of the most important museums in the world, has been able to bring culture to society, eliminating barriers of all kinds and ensuring that 98% of the art gallery is accessible to everyone, among other interesting topics.

According to Ventura Serra, manager of the hotels belonging to the Barceló Hotel Group in Santo Domingo, “we wanted to start this series of presentations with a subject particularly important to us here at El Embajador, a Royal Hideaway Hotel, and this is because we also wish to encourage integration in our field, the hospitality business, for example by eliminating architectural barriers when we recently refurbished the hotel, incorporating accessible rooms and adding Braille to much of our signage, among other actions”.
