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.
