Today, in order to visit Cuba from the United States, one must travel as part of an educational group tour. Pratt SCPS, in partnership with World Strides/International Studies Abroad (ISA), a leader in the travel industry, offers an unforgettable and special opportunity to visit Cuba safely and in complete compliance with United States Department of State regulations. Visa requirements are secured by World Strides/ISA on behalf of tour participants.

From April 14 to 20, spend seven days capturing the neighborhoods and beauty of Havana, Cuba, with master photographer and Pratt instructor Federico Savini (scroll down for bio). Enjoy a guest lecture by a prominent Cuban art critic and curator and field trips to unique cultural and historic locations including: a visit to the Akokán Community Project (an Afro-Cuban market,) a day trip to Las Terrazas with a visit to the Sierra del Rosario Biosphere and Soroa Orchid Botanical Garden, a tour of San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress, a visit to Camara Oscura—offering panoramic views of Old Havana, to name a view.

Post-trip, study tour participants are invited to exhibit a selection of photographs they make in Cuba in a group show at the SCPS Gallery.
