Docomomo Hawaii: Discovering Cuba

DocomomoHawaiiCuba2016Oct24wBioApp.indd

Join us for this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich local culture and rhythms of daily life in Cuba as we meet with local residents, artists, and professionals to see the island through their eyes while exploring local landmarks that are significant to Cuba’s heritage. Cuba is a tropical island nation unlike any other in the Caribbean; as rich in contrasts as it is rich in art, architecture and warm, welcoming people.

Our thoughtfully planned and professionally guided tour will be of great interest to those whose curious minds are ready to see for themselves and understand the story of Cuba, as told by Cubans themselves. There will be particular excitement in the air as President Obama’s announcement to normalize relations has brought much hope to the people of Cuba, and there simply could not be a more exciting time to visit this “time-capsule” nation before its landscape changes forever.
