Little Haiti Youth build a bridge to Haiti 7/10/10

Ashley Jean, Kerline Cajuste and Samandie Douceur, Miami Edison Middle School participants in the After-School All Stars / Arts for Learning Program Spring 2010 invite you to an evening of art for Haiti in conjunction with Marc Joseph and Ayabonmbe’s performance of REFUGEE.
Student Work from Arts for Learning classes at both Toussaint L’ouverture Elementary and Miami Edison Middle School will be exhibited in the Little Haiti Cultural Center Theater Lobby on Saturday, July 10 for performance attendees.

Our work since the earthquake of January 12 has been driven by concern, sadness and love for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. Join us as we send our handmade messages, 4 flags, to children at the Shalom Village Orphanage in Cap Haitien and take donations for supplies to help them in their art-making. Maeva Renaud, also part of the Arts for Learning family and founder of theChange is Coming Campaign whose primary focus is the orphanage, will receive our flags at the opposite end of the bridge we are building.

Please support the heart-centered efforts of Little Haiti’s young people. Your ticket purchase for the performance also benefits the Haiti Rebuilding Project.
