THE NEW CUBA CONFERENCE HOSTS ITS FIRST GATHERING ON JUNE 17, 2015 AT THE STANDARD, HIGH LINE NYC, PRESENTED BY SUGAR BARONS AND STANDARD TALKS.
On December 17, 2014, The United States and Cuba forever changed as the world witnessed each president speak to their own country on national television announcing a shared desire for restored relations. The symbolic day marked a milestone for Cuba/US relations after half a century of icy relations. What does this mean for our creative communities who have been mostly forbidden to co-create together for 55 years? The first assembly of "The New Cuba" brain trust will be a conference that takes place on June 17, 2015 in New York City at The Standard, High Line.
The future of Cuba is here, and the gathering will discuss how Americans can help create a thoughtful transition under Obama’s new regulations. Panelists will speak on the merits of what this means within their respective industry as well as how to create more cultural exchanges - all within the legal parameters that surround the new landscape.
The intent is to share stories and empower Cuban civil society to maintain its integrity, while educating American businesses on the philosophical and business challenges of working within Cuba’s structure. The goal is to remain forward thinking and altruistic in this new era of reconciliation.
