Ayiti, gade andedan

 

“Haiti, look inside” (Ayiti, gade andedan), is a talk/ musical presentation aimed at revisiting the many woes facing Haiti’s already vulnerable population and taking a look at what they, as a people, need at the most basic and deepest levels. I will call into question our past and present responses to the many hardships facing the population and make suggestions on how each individual can play a role in changing the narrative. I believe that by developing a knowledge of self, nurturing a connection to the planet, and embracing non-traditional ideas, Haiti can find a better way for all its children to not only survive, but thrive. It is time to look inside.
