Haiti Cuba Project

What is the historical, sociopolitical, cultural, and artistic connection between Cuba and Haiti? Discover Cuba’s and Haiti’s past, present, and future through the lens of a group of contemporary Cuban/Haitian artists.

The HCX community experienced their stories via an immersive audiovisual interpretation which included interviews, traditional dance, drum, and electronic music. These shared stories demystified the stereotypes of Haitians and Cubans. They redefined for themselves the concept of home and identity through a creative arts lens and have actively made a new history.
