Cultural Heritage Initiatives

  • The Cuban Rafter Phenomenon: A Unique Sea Exodus is a digital archive that includes photographs, interviews, artifacts, and related materials to explore the experiences of tens of thousands of citizens who have left Cuba in small boats, homemade rafts and other unusual craft during the rafter crisis of 1994.
  • Cuban Theater Digital Archive is an initiative that provides information and research on theater in Greater Cuba (one the island and in the diaspora) that focuses on the works, both written texts and live-art performance, of theater practitioners. It includes a database of information about writers, directors, actors, plays, and productions as well as an archive of born-digital or digitized photographs, set and costume designs, and video.
