The Rights to Live Creatively: Artistic Expression, Visibility, Solidarity   

Dwa pou Viv Kreyativman: Ekspresyon Atistik, Vizibilite, Solidarite

Thursday October 8th 10am EDT Panel

This session is free to the public (click here to register) and all current H.S.A. members (you may become a member here). This event will also be broadcast live in our Facebook page and YouTube  channel. 

In light of right-wing authoritarianism in Haiti today that exposes the clientelist nature of the justice system and increases violence against all who seek to live creatively, this Working Group convenes to hear from Haitian freedom fighters and artists on the ground in a series of webinar discussions and focused virtual gatherings.

The first panel features cultural workers Josué Azor and Jenny Cadet who will share with us the ways in which their works challenge gendered and sexual norms and offer us another vision of and for Haiti. During the gathering that follows the webinar, they will think together with attendees to design an action plan that supports and amplifies their efforts toward creative living in Haiti.

Schedule:

  • Panel: Thursday October 8th 10 am – 11 am EDT Panel
  • Post-panel conversation: 11:15 am – 12 noon EDT

Dwa pou Viv Kreyativman: Ekspresyon Atistik, Vizibilite, Solidarite
Tout manm H.S.A. ka vini nan Atelye a e patisipe ladan. Pou w vin manm ou ka ale la
 Jounen jodi a, kontèks otoritaris ladwat an Ayiti a ekspoze nati kliyantèlis sistèm Lajistis la. E li ogmante vyolans kont tout moun ki ap chache viv kreyativman. Nou konvoke Group Travay sa a pou tande vwa kèk militan ak atis Ayisyen/Ayisyèn ki sou beton an nan yon seri diskisyon ak rasanbleman sou entènèt. 
Premye panèl la gen travayè kiltirèl Josué Azor ak Jenny Cadet ki pral pataje avèk nou fason travay yo defye nòm seksyèl ak rapò ant gason ak fanm epi ofri nou yon lòt vizyon (queer) sou Ayiti, pou Ayiti. Pandan premye rasanbleman ki swiv premye diskisyon an, yo pral panse ansanm ak patisipan yo pou konsevwa yon plan daksyon ki sipòte ak anplifye zefò yo pou tabli yon viv ansanm kreyatif an Ayiti.
