Pax Christi group to offer presentation on dissent in Cuba

Tiffin Area Pax Christi is to feature Findlay-based writer, photographer and filmmaker Carole Elchert during its meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at St. Francis Spirituality Center, 200 St. Francis Ave.

Elchert is to present “Activismo: Art & Dissidence in Cuba.” She and Philip Sugden spent six days in Cuba in 2015 interviewing and filming Havana artists. Later, they interviewed U.S.-based Cuban artists for a documentary that discusses how art functions to produce social transformation through activism and dissidence.

The event is free, and refreshments are to be served. Donations for the speaker and contributions to the film are to be accepted. For more information, call (419) 306-0658.
