This is Jorge, a young Cuban student at the San Alejandro Academy of Arts in Havana. He is talking about his work and the work of other students. The Academy has students from the ages of 15 -19 from all over Cuba. Many go on to the arts university ISA and become professional artists, like Adislén Reyes, who also teaches at the Academy.

Arts materials and equipment are scarce in Cuba because of the ongoing US blockade. You can help these students by supporting the Presente! exhibition project and donating for art materials.
