Art, Photography and Culture in Cuba

Global Exchange Reality Tours has been contracted by Eileen McCarney Muldoon and Cindy Horovitz Wilson of Profundo Journeys Photography Workshops to arrange travel to Cuba.

This trip will provide the  opportunity to learn and visually experience first hand, this still authentic culture. You will have the chance to meet Cuban photographers, educators and social services professionals. There are informal gatherings with people in their neighborhoods where we can interact with residents and exchange stories about our cultures. And of course, there is much time built into our itinerary to do what we do best, immerse ourselves in artistic, technical and professional growth.

Global Exchange is a licensed Travel Service Provider by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.  Participants will travel as professionals under the General License.

This trip is open to professionals in the area of arts, education and social services as well as professors in these areas.
