During this 10-day Cuban people-to-people program, participants will visit and meet with Cuban artists, students, academic professionals, and entrepreneurs, exploring the island’s history, politics and economics through dynamic lectures and one-on-one exchanges. You will have an opportunity to learn about the growing private sector juxtaposed with Cuba’s endeavors to maintain a social welfare state, explore the island's Afro-Cuban history, culture, and religions, and enjoy the architecture, cuisine, music, and rhythm of Havana and surrounding cities.
