Abstract: Lisandro Otero comments on the state of the arts and artists in Cuba --- of painting and poetry in particular --- and also on regional, national and ethnic identities. He poses a series of questions to deepen understanding of those identities, and also notes that, to promote Caribbean consciousness, the "Centre for Caribbean Studies" has been established in Havana. The byline shows he is Director of the Centre, which he notes will publish a scholarly journal containing research and creative works, and each year will award an outstanding artist a prize named for venerated anthropologist and writer, Fernando Ortiz.
