BYENVENI Haitian Flag Day Curatorial Talk with Yvena Despagne & Artists

18 May @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Haitian-American art curator Yvena Despagne will lead a discussion about BYENVENI, The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institution (CCCADI)’s current multimedia exhibition celebrating contemporary Haitian Diasporic art.

This exhibition shines a spotlight on the creative expressions of eleven artists who focus on the theme of Lakay (translated as home in Haitian-Kreyòl), and explore Haiti as both a cherished internal sanctuary, preserving cultural traditions and religious practices, as well as an external haven, a space of refuge, familial and communal development, a source of boundless joy, and the cornerstone of sovereignty.

About Lakay se Lakay
Lakay se Lakay, which translates to Home is Home in Haitian Kreyòl is a year-long homage that celebrates the legacy of Haiti, Our Black Nation, Lakay se Lakay is a cultural odyssey through which we dedicate much of our programming. Using the lens of Haitian arts and scholarship, CCCADI explores home as a space for refuge, building family and community, preservation of traditions, a foundation for cultivating joy, and the roots of sovereignty.
