Interested in helping with Haiti Arts Relief or Diaspora of Hope? We are facilitating and training artists, educators, creative art therapists, social workers and others for arts relief in Haiti. We have a ten year commitment to the people and country. To read more about our plans read this report.
The first step is to complete an online profile. Once this is done, we will place you on a notification “on call” email list of upcoming opportunities. These can be as little as one week’s notice, but usually there is a lead time of several months. We require training to participate which includes an orientation to BuildaBridge, psychological first aid, arts relief, and the BuildaBridge Classroom (our teaching model). We highly recommended First Aid training with the Red Cross, as well. In addition, be aware that working in Haiti has numerous challenges in regard to health and security and you travel at your own responsibility and risk.
We call all volunteers and professionals who work with us Artists on Call.
