SOLD OUT – Cuba: Art, Culture & History
About the Journey
With privileged access to Cuba’s arts community and thought leaders, including a talk and reception at the Canadian Embassy, this in-depth itinerary will bring you into homes and studios, and into thought-provoking conversation with the Cuban people. Enjoy a private rehearsal at a famous dance company and a phenomenal evening of art and music at Havana’s Fábrica de Arte Cubano. Explore the dazzling Ceramics Museum at an after-hours tour and reception, and meet local experts including the former Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and the President of The Ludwig Foundation of Cuba. Spend a day in the western province of Pinar del Río, known for its lush tobacco plantations, and in the Viñales Valley, encounter spectacular caves, underground rivers, and the famous Mogotes, the iconic hillocks of the region. We invite you to experience this enigmatic island – just 90 miles from our shores – through the eyes of its people.
