Meet Pipo, the woodworker who opened an art school for local kids, when we visit Los Chapuserios and its students.

Children are a window into Cuba’s cultural soul and we’ll get an excellent look inside during our visit to La Conchita on the north coast of Cuba. Here we’ll learn about Geovani “Pipo” Jiménez Izquierdo – an artisanal woodworker who used his success to open Los Chapuserios, an art school for children. Renovated from the remains of a defunct factory, the school now creates experiences of immeasurable value for the community.
