Save the Date #GivingTuesday, November 28th!

For Giving Tuesday 2017, we’re raising funds for a new initiative: Haiti X New York. 

HCX takes great pride in providing a platform for Haiti-based artists in New York City. Haiti X New York is our effort to bring even more emerging and legendary talents from Haiti to present their work, engage with Brooklyn Diaspora youth, and connect with our local community of artists.


#GivingTuesday is a special call to action. Your donation on #GivingTuesday will help us reach our goal of bringing at least six Haiti-based artists to present their work in New York City during 2018.

Double Your Impact on #GivingTuesday, November 28th
