This is the time to visit Cuba! Sidestepping crowded Havana for the less visited side of the island, our people-to-people delegation will focus on Eastern Cuba’s lively visual arts, music and culture. We’ll visit studios, galleries, World Heritage Sites and neighborhoods being revitalized through imaginative art projects. We’ll meet with individual artists, visit community art projects, and experience firsthand how art and music have helped define Cuba’s Socialist culture. Guided visits to important museums will also be featured—along with a day to enjoy Cuba’s bath-warm waters.

Artists and writers are encouraged to join us; each day will include time for painting, drawing, journaling and/or photography. A wonderful combination of cross-cultural engagement and participation, this journey will bring us face to face with a country’s creative spirit.
