UNMusic Havana Connection Instruments and Art
Organized by: Shanon Joyal Hannah Cooper
Art is a language everyone can understand, and by supporting the arts in and from Havana, Cuba, we support the freedom of expression. United Nations of Music Havana Connection seeks to assist in providing musical instruments and art supplies for youth in Havana, Cuba. While Havana, Cuba is rich with artistic resources due to its culture and educational system, materials such as art supplies or musical instruments are scarce and in bad repair. Due to the US Economic Blockade the people are struggling against starvation less than an hour's flight from Miami. We wish to make an impact in the lives of the youth of the city by supporting art as means of expression and communication within their society and to the outside world, and going beyond the boundaries of language, geography or politics. We seek to raise funds to take instruments and art supplies to Havana area youth, as well as hold free public events locally, regionally and nationally to raise awareness to what we are doing.
