Conexion Dracula was conceived in 2010 when Analisa Williams (Casa Cultural Huellas) and Andres Maduro (Maduro's Tropical Flowers) met at an exhibition of Oswaldo de Leon Kantule. Both had wanted to create an artist residency but never had had the opportunity to do so. Analisa had the art world insight, experience and had organized creativity workshops. Andres, on the other hand, managed the Finca Dracula Orchid Sanctuary, a collection of more than two thousand orchid species and inspiring gardens - the perfect setting for such activity. Both were perfectly matched to this project.
Later in 2011 they got together and organized what was the first Conexion Dracula.
