- Lecture / Demonstration by world renown Cuban Dancer and musician Juan Carlos founder and artistic director of Omo Aché Cuban Cultural Arts. An organization proudly dedicated to preserving, promoting, and presenting Cuba’s rich cultural heritage through music and dance performances, class, workshops, lectures, and events throughout the world. His company is currently based in San Diego.
- They Are We – A film Directed by Emma Christopher. In Perico, Cuba an Afro-Cuban group has kept alive songs and dances brought aboard a slave ship by their ancestor, known only as Josefa. Then, in a remote village in Sierra Leone, people watched a recording of the Cubans’ songs and dances, joyously declared ‘They are We!’ and joined in with the songs. They had never forgotten their lost family, and now their descendants were coming home. So began preparations for the biggest festival in the village’s history, a welcoming home for their cousins.
- Been Too – Conversation and views from people who have toured Cuba and lived in the homes of the people. A panel discussion that looks at the socio-economic condition of the people and insight on how Cubans view their country.
