Event Details

George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, in partnership with Sister Cities International and the U.S. Department of State, is hosting a symposium in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, September 9 from 8:30am until noon at the Jack Morton Auditorium to discuss how the new U.S. approach on Cuba can promote more educational and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.  The event will provide practical information and advice for U.S. organizations about U.S. Cuba policy and regulations and advice from individuals and institutions in the U.S. that have had experience facilitating exchange and cultural programs with Cuba.

 

The symposium’s two panels will include presentations by U.S. government officials and private Americans from a range of academic, people-to-people and cultural organizations. The event will be opened by the Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs, Frank Sesno; Sister Cities International President and CEO Mary Kane, and Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan Ryan.  In addition to panel discussions, there will be opportunities to network among participants interested in starting or expanding citizen exchange projects with Cuba.  Representatives from J-1 exchange visa sponsoring organizations, universities and cultural organizations as well as from NGOs focused on citizen diplomacy and people-to-people exchanges are welcome to attend.
