The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) in partnership with S.O.B.’S, PEN World Voices and The Maysles Institute
Presents: World Nomads: Haiti

An Annual Series Exploring Transculturalism

May 2009 at FIAF in New York City

Following the highly successful inaugural season, World Nomads will focus on Haiti this year, bringing some of the most exciting examples of Haitian culture and art to New York. The small Caribbean island of Haiti is home to a rich and vibrant community of artists and writers, where influences and beliefs from all over the world have come together to create a cultural voice that is at once unique and universal.

World Nomads will showcase outstanding Haitian music, cinema, literature, and visual arts that have come to inspire audiences and artists worldwide. Highlighting both acclaimed and up-and-coming artists, World Nomads will explore the diverse cultural landscape of Haiti through performances, talks, screenings, and an exclusive gallery exhibit.

“With the close connection of the French and Creole languages and 500,000 Haitian emigrés who now call the New York area their home, a focus on Haiti this year is a natural sequel to World Nomads’ first season,” says Lili Chopra, FIAF Vice President of Cultural Affairs.
