Haiti People Project
Port Au Prince, Haiti

February and July 2011

Workingman Collective was invited by the International Center for Disaster Resilience, associated with the Harvard Medical School, as an artist-team to help develop strategies for combining medical, physical, psycho-social and aesthetic approaches to sustainable coping and wellness practices in the post-earthquake Port Au Prince community.  After seeing the scope of ICDR's work in Haiti we began to developed ideas for simple opportunities of transformation, such as walls or tables, into spaces for potential conversation, imagination, and empowerment.  

In July 2011 we created a chalkboard wall surface and drop-down chalkboard table combo for and with the ORAEDAH orphanage in Port Au Prince.  We also met and engaged with Haitian artists and cultural activists exploring possibilities for meaningful collaboration creative goodwill.

This is an ongoing project and Workingman Collective is open to discuss sustained support.   workingmancollective@gmail.com
