Part of this event’s programming will include a special guest — Juan Pablo Santa Luna  

Juan Pablo Santa Luna was born in Florencia, Colombia in 1979, where he spent his happy childhood. He studied international business in California and went to marketing school in Australia. In 2013 Juan moved to the United States where he started the second phase of his international corporate career. In 2019, after being disillusioned with corporate life, Juan reinvented himself as a full-time artist. 

In 2021, after suffering a midlife crisis, Juan realized that his true passion was helping other people.  After being given the title of Community Unifier for his tireless efforts within the Hispanic Community, Juan embarked upon his most ambitious project yet. Once he realized there was no Hispanic cultural and arts center in Orlando, Juan began the process of creating the HCA (Hispanic Cultural Alliance of Central Florida). His current efforts include bringing awareness to the Hispanic Culture, raising money for HCA, and sharing his vast knowledge about art and its relationship with Corporate with the Hispanic Community.
