This chapter examines the complications and challenges unique to developing a Cuba Festival program in collaboration with Cuban governmental partners at agencies such as the Cuban Institute for Cultural Research Juan Marinello. Given fifty years of diplomatic isolation, the author, assigned to curate a program that as of 2015 had not come to fruition, explores the implications of the collaborative research and training project for cultural diplomacy and cultural policy in both Cuba and the United States.
