The Haitian Education and Leadership Program (HELP) will be holding a Haitian Art Auction on Friday, November 9th.  The location will be the Prince George Ballroom at 15 East 27th St (between fifth and Madison). 

 

Not familiar with HELP? HELP is Haiti's largest University Scholarship Program.  Their support is particularly important as only one percent of the population is able to pursue a college education.  Program like this help to educate and employ a new generation of leaders in a country that has haemorrhaged professionals for decades.  You can view the HELP website here and an invite for this wothwhile event here.

 

Not familiar with Haitian art?  Then you really are missing something.  It is among the most creative, innovative, and vibrant genres of art I have ever seen.  Below are some links you may wish to explore to learn more:

 

1) West India Art Gallery

2) Discover Haiti: Art

3) Haitianna

4) Galerie Nader

Haiti Innovation hopes you will consider attending this event and learning more about both education and art in Haiti.
