This is the second post in video contributor Kelley Ferro’s two-part video series on Cuba. The first part is available here.

Havana is brimming with artists, so it’s no wonder that there’s art everywhere you turn. From painted public murals, to workshop galleries where you can see the artist’s work, to live jazz on the street—art is the pulse of the city. My 48-hour trip allowed me to dive right into the Cuban rhythm as our local guides introduced us to both historical architecture and modern artist collectives around the city. My group was even welcomed in the home of a famous young artist who shed light not only on the art scene in Cuba but on what it’s like to be a young person in Cuba right now.

In part 1: Local Life in Cuba.

    I wish I could put it sublimely into words, but I’m not a writer.

    What I hate about posts like this is describing Cuba as some kind of tourist destination and we visit to look at its art and architecture.

    This is a people enslaved by its government. There is no freedom of press, freedom of movement, freedom of association. Lives have been lost for merely speaking out against the govt.
