Project 4: Creative Arts Education and Therapeutic Art at Madame Luc’s Orphanage

22 May
Road North

Road North

Location: Thirty minutes north of Port au Prince Airport

Date: July 15-25 (This is an estimated date range)

Personnel Needed: Two-six Creative artists and therapists

Assignment: This orphanage sustained significant damage by the earthquake. The classroom building was completely destroyed and the dormitory is uninhabitable. It is likely that many of the 53 children exhibit symptoms of being traumatized. This assignment requires artists with basic survival skills and training in psychological first aid and arts relief. (Training is available June 7 at the BuildaBridge Institute.) Training in first aid is recommended. You will live in a tent and bring your own food for the week. While there may be structured classes, much of the time will be in building relationships, making art and planting gardens. French is needed and Creole is a plus.

Cost:Estimated cost $1800 plus airfare.
