Culture and Sustainability in Cuba
December 7 – 15, 2013
The internationally acclaimed La Colmenita Children's Theater project that grew out of a neighborhood development and sustainability program during the 1990's.
Eco Cuba Network and the Cubanakoa Foundation of Oahu, Hawaii invite your participation in this exciting program that will explore the role of the arts and culture in the context of sustainable development in Cuba.
Participants will enjoy Cuba's rich, multi-ethnic and vibrant cultural heritage of music, art, dance, and poetry in the neighborhoods and schools as well as in the theaters, music clubs and museums.
The program takes place during the 35th annual International Festival of New Latin American Film and provides an opportunity to meet with members of the Cuban Film Institute as well as the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists for wide ranging discussions, including issues of gender, race and development in Cuban culture and the integration of Afro Cuban and European influences in the arts and Cuban society as a whole.
The program will include site visits to neighborhood projects that combine art and environmental reclamation and is open to professionals in all fields of the arts, as well as fields related to the environment and sustainable development.
