Black Cuban feminists, cultural promoters, and educators, Mirna Padrón Dickson and Diarenis Rosa Calderon Tartabull direct an Independent artistic-social project called MirArte Diadia.  They consider themselves agents of change who use their creativity as a vehicle for social transformation. They apply a differential and intersectional approach that uses their experiences in Political Education in Human Rights and the Culture of Peace, with a gender perspective.
