Havana.- The so-called Casas de Cultura (Culture Houses), created four decades ago in Cuba, stand out as incentives to promote community work in the Caribbean island.
Such institutions were established with the goal of discovering, grouping and enhancing artistic talents in each community, with the participation of several generations.
These institutions have allowed consolidating the work by groups of amateur artists, who initially lacked a place to work together.
Several of these houses have implemented their own socio-cultural projects, taking their influence to faraway regions throughout the country.
They also contribute to the social reintegration of adolescents and children from dysfunctional families, as well as to the promotion of plastic arts, dance and theater.
