This is the time to visit Cuba! Focusing on the less touristed side of the island, our people-to-people delegation explores Eastern Cuba’s visual arts, music and culture. We’ll visit studios, galleries, World Heritage Sites and neighborhoods being revitalized through imaginative art projects. We’ll also meet with artists, visit community art projects, and experience how art and music help define Cuba’s culture. Guided visits to important museums will also be featured—along with a day to enjoy Cuba’s warm waters.

Artists and writers are encouraged to join us! Each day will include time for sketching, journaling, and/or photography. A great combination of cross-cultural engagement and participation, this journey will bring us face to face with a country’s creative spirit. And our optional excursion provides the opportunity to end your trip with a visit to lively Havana.
