A Post-modern Haitian Art Exhibit Designed to Unveil the Hidden Talents of Artists in the Diaspora Community

August 5, 2019 to December 30, 2019

About the Initiative

Officially scheduled to launch on August 2, 2019, the Diaspora Expression Expo is part of the Embassy’s larger public diplomacy initiative called Art Diplomacy. The Expo is a unique effort of the Embassy to (i) highlight the beauty and richness of the Haitian culture through its art (ii) connect with the Haitian Diaspora in the United States, and (iii) open its doors to the community at large to (re) experience Haiti through different lenses. Each piece is inspired by a captivating story of how they perceive Haiti through their own lenses, creating a collection of personal stories to tell the larger narrative of Haiti.

The Art Diplomacy series is one of the first of many initiatives created by Ambassador Hervé H. Denis/ Chargé d’Affaires to highlight the contribution of members of the Diaspora community in the promotion and advancement of the country. It is a platform to integrate them in the Haiti conversation. The journey began with a call for contribution circulated through the Embassy’s communications platforms and shared with the public. Shortly thereafter, the Embassy experienced an overwhelming response from members of the community. The Embassy and the public are equally excited about this new initiative and we invite you to join us in celebrating the ingenuity of the Diaspora by visiting the exhibit.

The exhibit will be open to the public from August 5, 2019 to December 30, 2019 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. To schedule a tour outside of the visiting hours, please send an email to wilzafrazil.metellus@diplomatie.ht.
