Wat je gaat doen
We will meet at the National Museum of Fine Arts (Cuban Collection Building). To start our experience, we will do it in the Cuban way: sharing a cup of coffee while we get the opportunity to know each other and talk about the dynamic of the day. We will navigate through the Cuban visual arts development, focusing on specific pieces to understand the presence of the African diaspora in the national creation. Then, we will ride together to Hamel Alley, the oldest community project in the country dedicated to promote AfroCuban culture. Once there, we will invite you to share the traditional cocktail of the place to start getting ready to explore the Alley, discovering in its walls and galleries the magic of the people´s art. At the end of the day you will have understood the synergy between the academic and the popular creation. And if you are lucky enough you could even meet Salvador, the main artist of the project
Adriana & Jose
We are the founders of Beyond Roots, a project focus on providing an Immersion in Afro Cuban Culture through your 5 senses. Growing up in Guanabacoa we were raised under the living legacy of our African ancestors. Now we have an authentic passion for educating people about this misunderstood topic. We want to share with you the feeling of our community, transmit you a knowledge that has been pass from generations and show you its influence in the daily life of the Cubans from different perspectives. In this particular experience we´ll do it through the visual arts.
