Ayiti Solidarity

LEKOL invites audiences join us in this process, shedding light and paying homage to the people who stood up to defend their way of life and their people, as we move closer to a Haitian history that is told by Haiti’s children. We place special emphasis on the contributions and thoughts of people who have been subjugated or omitted all together from dominant history as well as decolonizing those who are mentioned (though often distorted),  working collectively to see a more accurate picture of Haiti’s international contributions, the events and the circumstances that have created the Haiti one will experience on going there. Special guest speakers, musicians, poets, DJs and visual artists have participated in Lekol to share knowledge and art as contributions.

Earthship Biotecture 
the Earthship is the epitome of sustainable design and construction. No part of sustainable living has been ignored in this ingenious building.”


Marita Mariasine – Founder of The Haiti Projects

The Haiti Projects is devoted to providing a voice for the Haitian people and materializing initiatives to cause massive cultural exchange in Haiti to inspire the next generations through a series of projects that teach alternative, creative, self-reliant means of living, exposes them to world changes and crucial information, and creates avenues for cultural exchange in all realms of the arts. In collaboration with the Haitian people, The Haiti Projects is an umbrella for a movement that works this intention on all levels. It was created at the moment of the earthquake that rattled up the momentum to work project to project for the bigger picture of uniting with the other nations of the world in an effort to affect the direction of humanity, and restore justice in Haiti.

You may donate to efforts by going to: sa-k-la-k-wel.org

Sa-K-La-K-Wel is an arts based community center in Haiti.  Our focus has been to create opportunities for cross cultural partnerships by identifying leaders in the community and pairing them with international artists to collaborate on methods and curriculum.  The first phase of Sa-K-La-K-Wel is a five year endeavor.  Over course of that Five years the center will be increasingly owned and operated by the community itself.

  • Create Cross-Cultural, Interdisciplinary Classes and Collaborations That Foster Reciprocal Mentorship Between Artists, and Create Opportunity for Travel   Bringing artists to Haiti is already part of of what we do, but looking forward, we intend to create opportunities for artist exchanges that work both ways.
  • Reflect Local Traditions   All satellite programs should be lead or overseen by Haitian partners.  When possible, genre specific programs will seek out instructors and create opportunity for “sister classes” that reflect local tradition.
  • Stimulate the local economy   International in-kind donations are welcomed, but Sa-K-La-K-Wel will make every effort to obtain supplies in Haiti first.
  • Be a Source of Stability by Seeing the Big Picture and the Long View   The goal is staying power. We wish for Sa-K-La-K-Wel to be a resource for generations to come.  Every effort will be made so that day to day activities can run with or without the help of outside aid and foreign presence.  This is achieved through a focus of financial autonomy between the programs offered at the school and a sincere and on-going effort to undergird each program with sustainable economic resources found in the community.
