  • MASS MoCA member benefits for the duration of the residency, including free access to the museum’s galleries and discounts on performing arts events and museum store purchases.

Don’t miss out on the street artists, be it graffiti sprayers or the countless musicians that sing and dance on the bustling streets.
  • And then there’s Trinidad, a 500-year-old colonial town, where horses and cowboys still abound on the cobblestone streets. Trinidad is ideal for artists, be it for photographers capturing the color-blocking architecture at sundown, or dancers looking to immerse themselves in the salsa culture.

This program in Cuba is based on full cultural immersion, a 360-experience of the Cuban lifestyle, all while working on a project that you love.  Every Resident works on a self-directed creative project throughout his or her Residency.

The Residency is open to all nationalities and languages. Communications are conducted exclusively in English or Spanish.

Residency Fees: 3,000 Euros.  This includes housing in colonial “boutique” style houses with Cuban host families specifically selected by RGNN in Central Havana and Central Trinidad, with a Cuban family to welcome and attend to them. The accommodation is shared in double rooms (2 individual beds). RGNN will assign accommodation. Thirteen (13) nights: six (6) nights in Havana and seven (7) nights in Trinidad.
