I am taking a well earned rest after my studies and a most enjoyable time at Birkbeck. I am going to Cuba to so some volunteering work, leaving on 6 December.
I was wondering whether any of you would be able to make a donation towards my trip. I will be working with a charity called The Music Fund for Cuba, which is the only UK registered charity which supports the development of music, arts and culture in Cuba. This charity was established in 2001 in memory of British singer Kirsty MacColl who was inspired by Cuban music in her last album and loved the island, its culture, and its people. Cuba is renowned for its cultural traditions. Sadly this heritage and the development of future talent are hindered by a lack of access to basic equipment and materials that we in richer countries often take for granted. Violin strings, paper for music scores, reeds for woodwind instruments, ballet shoes, paints and other small but essential items are all in short supply. The Music Fund for Cuba aims to help nurture new talent by providing much needed support and equipment for children and young musicians, dancers and artists throughout the island that may otherwise be denied.
