Haiti Progress, August 2012: Healing & Education


Healing and Education: through the arts

Healing and Education through the Arts. Architecture for Humanity has implemented a civic art program featuring the work of local Haitian artisans. The earthquake had as devastating an impact on the culture of Haiti as it did on its buildings, streets and lives. There is now the risk that as Haiti rebuilds that much of her culture will be forgotten as art and artists are foregone in favor of more utilitarian responses. We believe that Haiti needs the restorative effects that a civic arts program could bring. See below
