About HCX and Selebrasyon! New York’s Celebration of Haitian Art & Culture
Haiti Cultural Exchange is a nonprofit organization established in 2009 to develop, present and promote the cultural expressions of the Haitian people. Programs and services seek to support emerging and established artists, promote cross-cultural exchanges, preserve Haiti’s cultural heritage, and encourage dialogue around contemporary social issues.
In rural communities in Haiti, farmers come together to help their neighbors plant their fields in a traditional farming cooperative effort called a Konbit-- collaborating together to ensure the largest possible harvest for all community members. Just as the Haitian Konbit brings people together for the common cause of planting the land, HCX seeks to bring people, ideas, and communities together to grow their understanding and engagement with Haitian culture.
Join our Konbit and help make a difference TODAY!
Everyone who donates to this campaign will be invited as a special guest to a SELEBRASYON! event of their choosing.
