The administration approved a second trip called Media Arts Collaboration: Cuba, which will take place from March 28 to April 5, two months after the digital storytelling trip to Cuba in January.

Led by visual arts teachers Alyssa Sherwood and Joe Medina, students will communicate with Cuban children, document the trip and use social media to share photos with others.

The trip will be different from the January trip to Cuba led by Head of Upper School Visual Arts Cheri Gaulke.

The HW Go! Trip will focus more on “a global collaboration between students in Cuba and the U.S. using photography and social media,” Medina said.

The students will visit rural neighborhoods, explore a tobacco farm and go snorkeling. They will also experience Cuban art and music, and learn local cultures and traditions.
