Join Tamarind Director Emerita Marjorie Devon for a one-week (May 7-15, 2016) tour of Havana, highlighted by visits to artists' studios, community art projects, and art institutions. Knowledgeable local guides provide logistical and translation support, as well as a wealth of insights into the Cuban way of life.
