Affordable Cuba for Arts Professionals:  $1,995
At a time when rising costs have made travel to Cuba unaffordable for many Americans, MBGreeen Arts Curating and Global Arts/Media is pleased to offer Artists2Cuba, a low-cost "thrills but no frills" research and professional development program for U.S. artists and arts professionals.  Visual, performing and literaryartists, arts and museum educators, community arts managers and other arts professionals are invited to participate.
Artists2Cuba is an intensive,  full-immersion program - the best way to experience the real Cuba. In small groups of 8 - 10, we'll stay in clean but modest bed & breakfast residences, enjoy inexpensive but delicious meals in local paladares, and experience the art, music, history and monumental charms of Havana.
Program participants will have access to MBGreen Arts Curating and Global Arts' extensive network of artists and cultural leaders, educators and social scientists. 

Program activities include:

  • Tours of art museums, galleries and cultural institutions led by Cuban art experts, with opportunities to engage in discussion and dialogue
  • Visits with local art schools to talk about student education and training
  • Opportunities for conversations with average Cubans in markets, streets and neighborhood settings
  •  Meetings with Afro-Cubans to discuss issues of race and identity in Cuba
  • Opportunities to talk with Cuban women to explore issues of gender equality and women's empowerment
  • Visits to nightclubs and dance clubs as an opportunity to meet Cubans informally through music and dance


"Experience the Arts" Sessions.  Each participant will have opportunities to participate in workshops and discussions with prominent Cuban visual, performing and literary artists in the studios and places where they make art. The content of each workshop will be developed with input from the U.S. and Cuban artists prior to our arrival in Havana.

What else is included in the  $1,995  cost?
RT Air between Miami and Havana, visa, bed & breakfast accommodations for 5 nights, breakfast daily at the B&B, medical insurance while in Cuba.
