HAVANA, Cuba.- Cookie Fischer, professor at the Woodbury University in California, USA, said in Havana that she has personally seen during her visit to Cuba that the reality here is quite different from her country’s media portrays.
Fischer is visiting Cuba as part of a intercultural exchange program sponsored by the José Martí Cultural Society that brought students and teachers from the LA university to Havana.
She praised especially the meeting she had with the members of the Korimacao, a community cultural promotion project that mixes young artists and inhabitants of the Zapata Swamp, in the southern coast of Cuba.
The members of her group visited the International School of Film and Television in San Antonio de los Baños and signed a collaboration agreement that will enable both institutions to have a student’s exchange program.
Fischer added that one of the outcomes of this trip is the creation of the first Marti Club in the United States.
