× RASIN LAKAY
We are proud to announce that we are offering another round of grants through our HCX RASIN LAKAY OPEN CALL for 10 artists of Haitian descent in NYC and Haiti to create and present new work to be shared via the HCX online platforms.
Artists of all disciplines are invited to apply for a one-time grant of $500 to create and share original work. In 2021, we will select artist projects in alignment with our current theme “FANM”. Topics such as womanhood, gender/sexuality, environment, and generational leadership will guide curation and artist selection. Priority will be given to female, femme-identifying and queer artists.
We encourage imaginative use of social media to express yourselves and bring people together. Examples include but are not limited to: short films, photography, virtual workshops series (how to make X, dance with me, drum with me, paint with me, etc.), seminars, talks, live music performances, creative writing, spoken word, poetry, or performance art.
Haiti Cultural Exchange will accept short applications on a rolling basis until this funding is expended. If you would like to reach us, email is best: firstname.lastname@example.org–we look forward to hearing from you.
