Travel Cuba and Explore Arts & Culture

March 10, 2014

The LAII is excited to announce new international educational programs for community members. These programs do not provide academic credit; rather, they serve as immersive experiences that allow members of the community to explore and learn about Latin America and Iberia through tailored itineraries. In July, 2014, we will explore "Arts & Culture in Cuba."

Previous trips to Cuba have emphasized printmaking, sculpture, dance, music, grassroots organizations, and broader cultural practices. After being virtually closed off from the US for more than 50 years, Cuba and its people capture our imagination.

Join us as we learn about the art, culture, and ways of life of Cuba as we meet and interact with its citizens. Through a partnership with UNM Continuing Education, the LAII is offering another opportunity to experience "Arts and Culture in Cuba." This 7-day trip (April 19 - 26, 2014) will feature discussions with working artists and leaders in community-led dance, music, environmental and agricultural programs. Participants will experience museums, the beautiful architecture of Old Havana, and the biosphere reserve of Pinar del Rio.
