Tierra del Fuego seeks to turn a Casino into the largest Cultural Center in Patagonia

Gonzalo Benito Zamora: This is a before and after for the culture of the island, as it places the province in a unique place to position itself in the field of culture at the regional level

A major casino in Tierra del Fuego plans to become the largest Patagonian cultural center if the bill sent by the local government is approved, following the initiative of two young people who launched a campaign to change its use and won more than 4,000 signatures in a short time. This is an emblematic building of 6,000 square meters in the shape of a whale and located on the coast of the Beagle Canal, which has been closed since last October because the company decided to cease its activities and fire 90 employees. The idea was driven by two 15-year-old Fuegian youth, Abril Gauna and Micaela d'Annuncio, who gathered more than 4,000 signatures on the Change.org platform asking for the Casino Club building to become a cultural center. From the executive branch of the province, Gov. Rosana Bertone took the proposal and sent a bill to the Legislature to begin the process of acquiring the building, of what, according to spokespersons for the province, will be the “largest Cultural Center in the South of Latin America”. “The smart building has a total area of 6,000 square meters with terraces, a subfloor with space for training and conference rooms and two industrial kitchens. With unique views of the Beagle, the space can be adapted for conference rooms, theater, cinemas and explosion rooms,” reports the Tierra del Fuego government in a statement. In this regard, the Secretary of Culture of Tierra del Fuego, Gonzalo Benito Zamora, stressed that “it is a before and after for the culture of the island, since it places the province in a unique place to position itself in the field of culture at the regional level.” The decision of this transformation that weighs culture over gambling appears as an answer in a year in which three casinos closed their doors in Tierra del Fuego.
