This year, Haiti Cultural Exchange (HCX) will focus its programming on the theme of Rasin / Roots—exploring intergenerational solidarity, the environment, and movement building—as they “explore the varied ways we understand our heritage and how our community continues to grow.”
The first event in the series is “It started with a seed,” a workshop led by Tasha Dougé, reflecting on the idea of freedom and the Haitian Revolution. This workshop is part of The Wyckoff Museum’s Creative Homesteading: Putting the Farm to Bed, and will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019, from 12:00 to 2:00pm, at The Wyckoff House Museum (located at 5816 Clarendon Road, Brooklyn, New York).
This will be followed by Fèt RASIN on Thuursday, October 17, with Haiti-based drummer Youry Vixamar and NYC DJ Sabine Blaizin for a night of beats, drums and vibes.
On Saturday, October 19, Danse RASIN presents Haiti-based dancer Linda François and drummer Youry Vixamar for a day of dance and drumming at Gibney Dance.
