The Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance (HCAA) and The Urban Zen Foundation in collaboration with fashion industry legend, Donna Karan present "Discover Haiti" Urban Zen at the Little Haiti Cultural Center from May 16th to July 1st, 2013. Take a journey and discover Haiti. Nomad Two Worlds and Donna Karan continue to support the artisans of Haiti with the new DISCOVER HAITI EXHIBITION showcasing a collection of art, accessories, clothing, and home furnishings designed and produced in Haiti. The exhibit will feature work shaped by generations of traditional Haitian artisans, using natural elements such as stone, wood, paper, metal, tobacco and horn. The "Haiti Artisan Project" working in collaboration with Donna Karan, aims to create a sustainable model of small industrial production and commercial expertise to support the art community of Haiti and to preserve the rich culture of the island.
The HCAA and the Zen Foundation aim to help Haiti help itself by utilizing and organizing its artisans, natural resources and production potential to create business models that can be properly marketed and distributed throughout the US and Europe. We are celebrating the "Haitian Heritage Month" by presenting these beautiful original Haitian arts and crafts to the Miami audience at the Little Haiti Cultural Center.
