Our Values

Vision

A space for all people to learn, explore, develop, and express a voice through creative mediums.

Mission

The Jakmel Ekspresyon Arts Center provides local artists with space and facilities in a non-discriminatory environment. The center provides skills and resources to empower self-change and entrepreneurial spirit to local and international artists.
Providing a space of non-discrimination creates an environment of honesty and openness, but unless the artists are successful, a meaningful change in their lives cannot be made. In the first meeting with the Founders, they decided that the complete life of the artist must be considered. Creative skills, professionalism and health were identified as resources needed in the harsh reality of Haitian life. With programming in these areas the Center is nurturing creative social innovators that can succeed in developing a healthy life.
