"The Healing Arts:
Arte y Salud – Una Buena Alianza!"

The Festival of International Books and Arts (FESTIBA) was established in 2006 to promote the importance of literacy, culture and the arts to students, parents, educators and community members throughout the Rio Grande Valley. With the theme The Healing Arts: Arte y Salud – Una Buena Alianza!, FESTIBA 2017 will take place February 27 through March 5.

Healing is more than the prevention and curing of disease — it is also about the fulfillment and expression of the full potential of the heart, the mind and the spirit! Traditional healing arts include music, art, dance, creative writing, and drama. The healing arts have been described as creative activities and practices of artistic expression that promote wellness and healthy living. Join us for FESTIBA 2017, as we explore the positive impact of the healing arts on good health!
