The CubaNOLA Arts Collective uses the power of live music, dance, festivity and diversity to promote cultural wellness and equity.
We are a collective of artists, tradition bearers, educators, scholars, students and everyday people that explore the shared histories and lifestyles of New Orleans, Louisiana, Cuba, the Caribbean and Latin America. We strive to understand the complexity of African and Latino identity throughout the Americas.
Our projects tap into the power of neighborhood traditions to connect communities and tackle current problems by recognizing their historic roots and by having fun together. We produce concerts, exhibits, documentaries, readings, workshops, community maps, exchanges, cultural heritage tours and more.
