Who We Are

The American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (AFLFC) is a leading organization in the U.S. fostering cultural exchange between American and Cuban artists and art professionals. Our unique partnership with the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (LFC), a non-governmental, non-profit art and cultural institution in Havana, has enabled us to maintain exclusive ties to the exceptional art community of Cuba.

AFLFC’s exchange programs have given American and Cuban professionals and students in the fields of arts and culture extraordinary opportunities to broaden their understanding of the arts, enhance their professional careers and enrich and expand creative expression.

We collaborate with individuals and distinguished cultural institutions such as Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Joyce Theater, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab, and Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to offer educational and cultural workshops, courses, festivals, internships, conferences, seminars, exhibitions and artist residency programs both in the U.S. and Cuba.
