The event will be staged by the Fundacion Encuentro Prome Bienal di Aruba under the direction of Mrs Alida Martínez, artist and manager, whose management of the INSIGHT Foundation for the Arts Aruba has made her a key figure in the island's cultural life and for its connections with the Caribbean and elsewhere, by doing serious, consistent work promoting the dissemination of contemporary art in Aruba and arranging exchanges with Dutch and other foreign artists.
The foundation Martinez runs has rapidly become a point of reference for similar small islands, maintains an active programme of exhibitions, workshops and lecture cycles, and produces art publications. Its cooperation with events such as the Havana Biennial has resulted in the presence of Aruban artists at important international exhibitions.

The event Encuentro Prome Bienal Arte di Caribe, Aruba 2011-2012 organized by Fundacion Encuentro Prome Bienal di Aruba receives the support of the ministry of Culture of Aruba. The foundation has 3 members on the board. Mrs. Alida Martinez, Mr. Roly Sint Jago and Mr. Hans Schaling.
