If you are an artist…
You are very welcome to join Links to Haiti but we recommend you apply to participate through Black Arts Retreat (BAR) whose mission is to: “Unite Lovers & Practitioners of African Diasporic Art & Culture, for connecting, learning, and rejuvenating in a safe, natural space”. http://www.blackartsretreat.com/ The Links to Haiti group and BAR will join forces on all of the major excursions, artistic offerings, celebrations and meals but BAR will have specific offerings for practicing artists.

Do I need to speak a language other than English to go on the trip?
No. We will have guides and interpreters. French and Haitian Creole or Kreyòl are the official languages of Haiti. But here’s a resource of Haitian Creole Phrases to prepare you and a link to Alliance Française of Chicago’s classes if you want to be able to communicate on your own!
