DOUGLASS HALL ROOM 102–HAITIAN ART & DESIGN WORKSHOP

Language: English

Moderator: Irene Brisson (Louisiana State University)

• Petrouchka Moïse (Grinnell College)

• Peter Haffner (Centre College)

This will be a hands-on workshop using writing, drawing, collage, and verbal exchange to visualize the margins, centers, intersections, divisions, borders, and entanglements that describe the landscape of Haitian art and design. Some general questions that will be addressed in the workshop and moving forward: • To design shared experience, how will the community of scholar-artists engaged in this project be defined? Who is included and excluded depending on the mode and location of engagement? • What communication strategies will be needed to ensure that Haitian art and design scholarship or projects are being seen by who they are meant to be seen by? • How can this gathering connect with other initiatives in the realm of Haitian art and design to identify and amplify the synchronicities between projects? This workshop is an opening conversation among people committed to supporting creative practices working from marginal locations including Haiti and the Afro-Caribbean which have offered “the possibility of radical perspective from which to see and create, to imagine alternatives, new worlds” (hooks 20).

DOUGLASS HALL ROOM 105A CALL TO ART (WORKSHOP)

Language: English

Moderator: Jose Zelaya

• Wael Qattan

In the spirit of the nèg mawon’s call to revolution, we open with Philomé Obin’s 1940s call to art. Obin’s Cap-Haïtien school launched an art movement, elevating daily joys with historical triumphs. He would innovate how paintings were exhibited in Haiti and successfully compel museums, including NY’s MoMA and Amsterdam’s Stedelijk, to showcase Black Art excellence. We engage with subsequent Haitian movements and American artists who heeded Obin’s call. Our conversation is designed to address and workshop curatorial strategies that present artists inspired by Obin’s call, artists who challenge institutional art-world boundaries, celebrating Black epistemologies.

DOUGLASS HALL ROOM 103–PÈP AYISYEN SE LAFIMEN NOU YE (WORKSHOP)

Language: English

Moderator: Nic Aziz

• Lori Martineau

The goal of this expressive arts workshop is to explore our past in order to inform the mental and emotional dissonance in our present. Using 3 key events in Haitian history, we will examine if they have contributed to our current day cultural practice of mawonaj. The group will brainstorm words that define mawonaj. These words will be recorded by facilitators. Each participant (10-15 maximum) will respond to prompts given by the facilitators using art materials. PROMPT 1 When someone asks you about your heritage, how does it feel to say, “I am Haitian”? If you are not Haitian, what attracts you to Haiti or Haitian people? PROMPT 2 For 4,745 days our ancestors waged war on anyone wanting to keep us enslaved. Imagine Independence Day. How did your ancestors feel? If your ancestors were not Haitian, what do you imagine they believed about this new nation? PROMPT 3 At the time of our independence, our West African ancestors had their own food, customs, art, music and beliefs that shaped the society around them. They also had their own religion, what we now call Vodou. How do you describe Vodou? What is it or how do you feel about it? PROMPT 4 We have had so many twists and turns in Haitian politics. When you think about the current state of our government, what are some of the things that impact its functioning or non functioning?
