ReplanteART is a pilot project for local development in Chermaitre, Haiti, which uses art and creativity as the means to achieve its goals.
This proposal is born out of the motivation of a group of young professionals who share the idea that the cultural and economic development of a country must be led by its population. Based on this idea, the enhancement that ReplanteART aims to provide in Chermaitre is to offer the technical and social resources that will allow its population to create their own work opportunities.
As a strategy to promote activism, we believe in art as a transformative tool, so our proposal consists of a series of artistic workshops aimed at generating a social and economic impact.
To achieve our objectives, it will be essential to establish a network of contacts that will help us join our expertise to ensure to success of the project. We will work on these collaborations before, during and after the field work part of the project.
Chermaitre is a rural community in the north of Haiti, characterized by having a predominantly female population, and living in harmony and in direct contact with nature. The content of our artistic activities and workshops will highlight the value and importance of this deep tie to the environment and reinforce the image of the Haitian women.
The project is supported by the NGO, Vassar Haiti Project, who has been working in this community since 2001. We share the same approach and values with them.
ReplanteART is a pilot project for local development in Chermaitre, Haiti, which uses art and creativity as the main means to achieve its objectives:
• To promote Chermaitre's local economy through art and its cultural identity (technical skills training).
• Improve self-confidence and develop critical thinking skills of its population (social skills training).
Chermaitre is a very small self-sustaining community with a predominantly female population, living in direct contact with nature. However, the local economy is practically non-existent, which makes it difficult to access even basic services, such as health care.
For this reason, we at ReplanteART want to provide support to improve their living conditions by offering resources and training to develop their technical, economic and social skills, which will empower them to become agents of change.
Art and creativity can have transformative effects, as well as encompassing a broad professional sector, both facilitate the ability to generate different solutions to problems. That is why we propose a series of artistic workshops with social and economic impact.
In addition to these workshops, ReplanteART has a block that we have called Synergies, fundamental for achieving the project's goals.
The two blocks are summarized below:
(I) Program activities
The program will be carried out in the field over the course of 3 weeks and half, and will be aimed mainly towards the working women of Chermaitre and the neighboring villages -- between the 18 and 35 years of age.
It is structured in two parts: artistic workshops and complementary activities.
Through the artistic workshops, the participants will learn various techniques and skills. The goal is to promote a process of expressive and dynamic creation that encourages the development of creativity and to think about the environment from a new perspective.
The workshops have been structured around two lines of work:
• Stamping and stamping design. The resulting products will be digitized to give them a commercial format to export.
• Custom jewelry with gender identity.
The complementary activities will serve to reinforce the themes related to the content of the workshops. Some of these proposals are:
• Solar cooking workshop: Through this workshop, participants will learn new alternatives to wood burning, in the form of solar cookers. Deforestation is a serious problem in Haiti.
• Open workshop: The work space of the workshops will be open during all working hours
More information on the activities / workshops on the web https://replanteart.wordpress.com/ (the section "workshops" will be added)
Before, during and after the field work phase, we will create a network of contacts to combine various expertise and experiences, to achieve a greater impact to and give continuity to the project.
This network will be built around three target audiences:
• International trade synergies: to give exposure to local talent and local production.
• Local synergies: to give continuity and support to the work in Haiti.
• National and international artistic synergies: to offer us the possibility of exposing the resulting work and even of performing some artistic residences for the local people who might be interested.
The project is supported by the NGO, Vassar Haiti Project, who has been working with this community since 2001. We share the same approach and values. For more information visit the following linkhttp://www.thehaitiproject.org/
Waarom is dit belangrijk
This proposal is born out of the motivation of a group of young professionals who come from different professional sectors and who seek the creation of more fair and balanced future societies.
We share strategic points of view that have defined the basic aspects of the project, specifically that the development of a country must be led by its population.
We present ReplanteART as a pilot project that unites these concerns and puts into practice a form of community development based on our training and experience in various sectors and contexts.
Why the artistic medium?
The ability of art to reach people in a more direct and sensory way enables us to generate a greater social impact in areas where communication and expression through alternative to formal means is essential. This is particularly true for countries such as Haiti, where according to UN data, 51.3% of the Haitian population is illiterate.
In addition to the wide range of job opportunities offered by the art sector.
According to data from the World Bank, the rural population in Haiti has gone from 80% in 1980 to 41% in 2015. Haitians have moved to urban centers in search of opportunities, but in cities they face extremely hash living conditions.
Chermaitre is a very small community that has resisted this urban trend. Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, its self-sustaining population, mainly women and children, continues to live in direct contact with nature. However, although security conditions in Chermaitre are better than in the city, which facilitates the execution of the project, there are difficulties associated with the lack of economic means (local economy practically nonexistent), and access to such basic resources as sanitation, electricity and running water, and education.
Within this framework, ReplanteART emerges as an innovative response that seeks to boost its social and economic development without the need to change their lives by migrating to the city.
The history of Haiti is full of devastating events that, little by little, have weakened the country, the last of which being the earthquake of 2010. But Haiti is also a resilient country, with a strong culture, diversity and a rich history, full of hidden potential. It is necessary to break with the victimization of the country. We at ReplanteART believe that the projects and the communication that emerge from the NGOs and other international organisms must have a positive and constructive approach led by its population.
Doelen van de crowdfunding campagne
We are looking forward to landing in Haiti to launch the ReplanteART project together with the people of Chermaitre and we need your help! The objective is to raise a sufficient amount that will allow us to purchase the material needed for the development of the workshops, to cover traveling expenses, and to create an effective dissemination campaign.
The goal is to raise 4664 euros (minimum budget) that will allow:
- To kick start the entire artistic program.
- To purchase the necessary material for the development of the workshops.
- To cover travel expenses (airfare, lodging, modes of transportation, etc.)
- To carry out an effective communication campaign (cards, talks, press, video promotion on social media, individual rewards ...)
- To generate final documents of the results and lessons learned on the project’s website.
- To promote local and international synergies that give continuity to our work in the field.
If we reach the optimal budget of 7707 euros, in addition to the above, we will:
- Recover part of the investment made on trips to disseminate the project.
- Increase the amount of some materials and provide new materials for the workshops.
- Charge some minimum fees for our professional activity.
If these objectives are achieved, we will focus on developing the main points of the project:
- To improve the self-confidence and to develop critical thinking skills of a sector of the population of Chermaitre, through shared learning during the execution of the different artistic workshops.
- To promote the local economy through art and cultural identity.
- To strengthen the local and international synergies found, to give continuity and support to the local economy project and the potential talent detected.
ReplanteART is composed of a group of active and restless young professionals who believe that small changes can lead to greater achieving greater goals. We are united by our strong friendship, our shared core values and social concerns, and our strong and harmonious work ethic.
Our training and experience is in various sectors, such as economics, architecture, art, communication, science, business administration, and international cooperation. Individually, we have worked in many countries including Morocco, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Indonesia, Guinea, India, USA and China. Our multidisciplinary and cultural diversity continuously enriches us a group.
Our field team responsible for conducting the workshops is composed of Maria and Natalia, who have worked together in Indonesia in 2015, in the context of an international program of art and culture, to which they were invited. Through this working relationship, they realized they formed a great tandem, with shared concerns and differences that complement each other.
Roger will be on the ground for the first two weeks of the project to conduct a solar cooking workshop. He has played a key role in creating a strong bond between ReplanteART and the Vassar Haiti Project (VHP). He has met on numerous occasions with VHP founders and directors, Lila and Andrew Meade, with whom he has established a very good relationship. Also, being from Haiti, Roger has been instrumental in setting realistic goals and expectations of Haiti for the team.
Roger and Maria traveled together to Haiti in 2013, a trip from which the seed of ReplanteART was “planted”.
Counterpart (support NGO):
Vassar Haiti Project (VHP): Vassar Haiti Project is a small NGO based in New York, which will support for the project. Lila and Andrew Meade are its directors and co-founders. They have shown great enthusiasm and support from day one, and have shared with us their deep knowledge and expertise, acquired over six years of experience in working in Chairmaitre. VHP also has a vast network of youth community of current students and alumni from Vassar College, who support the work through their volunteering efforts, both in organizing and fundraising events. More information on VHP and its projects can be found on their website: http://www.thehaitiproject.org/
The ReplanteArt support team is composed of Pablo, Victor and Pilar. They have worked tirelessly on various aspects of the project, both from the creative and technical sides. Pablo and Victor both studied Economics.
