Non-for-profit Collaborations


Friends of Havana (FoH) is a project established in 2015 by Jasper Goldman, Linda Rodriguez and Felipe Rutllant to provide assistance to Cuban urban planners and architects as they plan the future of Havana.

FoH and World Monuments Fund were responsible for the organization of an international workshop in Havana, in February 2017 titled “Hablemos de la Habana.”


The Civita Institute is an international organization devoted to the relationship between art, architecture, environmental stewardship, agricultural heritage and cultural exchange. The Northeast Chapter of the Civita Institute was founded in 2015 by Norma Barbacci, Gwen Conners, Rob Maulden and Renee Sandoz Whitehead. The chapter coordinates and funds fellowships for arts professionals wishing to pursue independent research or projects in the Italian hill town of Civita di Bagnoregio. Architects, artists, landscape architects, preservationists, planners, art historians, writers and other arts professionals are invited to apply for one and two month NE Chapter Fellowships. Applicants must be residents of ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ or PA.
