Yemanja Arts Festival February 23, 2013
Every February the dance school I attend, Brasartes/Casa de Cultura, mounts the beautiful YEMANJA ARTS FESTIVAL directed by Conceicao Damasceno – This Feb 23, 2013 I performed in the festival, along with a number of my classmates, a piece choreographed by our teacher Rodson Santos de Jesus. It was challenging and very rewarding. Our dance isn’t on line but you can see some of the other dances here and here.

Since early 2010 I have collaborated with the ad-hoc group Poto Fanm+Fi formed in response to the Haitian earthquake in January of that year. Most recently I provided editing assistance to the project’s production of a survey and report on gender-based violence. The report, Beyond Shock:┬áCharting the landscape of sexual violence in post-quake Haiti:┬áProgress, Challenges & Emerging Trends 2010-2012, was written by Anne Christine d’Adesky and includes an introduction by Edwidge Danticat.
