Event Details

The first part of a two-part conference hosted by Roots of Hope and Princeton University, this portion of the conference is meant to unite students, professors, artists, and hyphenated Cubans to enjoy 2 days of polemic, insightful and ground-breaking discussion about currently existing or potential channels of interchange and communication that link Cuba with the rest of the world. A dynamic and provocative line up of voices representing several generations are being brought together to lead the discussion in a series of multdisciplinary panels. Cuban artists like Tania Bruguera, David D'OMNI and others will also be unveiling some of their new work for a colorful clash between the academic and the artistic. Last but not least, Edgaro Gonzalez, member of Doble Filo will be DJing a fusion of traditional Cuban beats with a mix of house and hip hop.

The Princeton conference is free and open to the public. 

The NY portion of the conference will be on April 12th and will focus on other topics, have a distinct line-up of exciting speakers; and in the hopes of fostering an innovative spirit, its programming will feature individual Ted-style presentations, interactive design workshops and supplementary elements such as a pop-up book store.
