Upcoming Event: "Rising UP" Book Launch and Photo Exhibit
On Friday, October 10th, 2014 come join us at Villa Kalewes, in Petionville, as we celebrate the new book, "Rising Up" authored by the amazing Nadia Todres. The book launch will be accompanied by a photo exhibit highlighting the selected works of the young adolescent girls of Center for the Arts.
About the book:
Rising Up is the inspiring photographic journey of a group of adolescent girls in Haiti, living in an encampment of displaced persons after the earthquake of 2010, who have learned, through photography and art, to understand their own value, gain confidence and express themselves. Their journey was made possible by an innovative arts education program, launched by photographer Nadia Todres, through the Center for the Arts in Port-au-Prince. Rising Up is narrated by the subjects themselves, as photographers and as witnesses to the blossoming of their own empowerment.
