Image for PCAH among Delegates for U.S. Government Cultural Mission to Cuba

Apr 20, 2016

A U.S. government cultural mission to Cuba is wrapping up after visiting the island from April 18-21. The delegation, according to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), includes “some of America’s most distinguished writers, artists, musicians, as well as arts and cultural leaders,” and it will “continue this historic collaboration with the Cuban people.”

The delegation includes the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities (PCAH), a national partner with the Guild on our Creative Youth Development initiative. “The arts and humanities have helped generations around the world face the most challenging questions and discover the most basic truths,” said PCAH co-chair George Stevens. “Our delegation will have the opportunity to explore our common humanity and shared values with our friends and colleagues in Cuba.”

PCAH co-chair Margo Lion added, “Our country draws strength from our ability to connect with one another through art, literature, scholarship, music, and film. Our delegation embodies the best of American culture—the power of the arts and the humanities to transcend geography and politics.”
