Having a healthy life helps free the artist’s imagination.
Health is always an issue in Haiti. In a survey, most artists said stress was one of their primary concerns for health. Haiti experiences multiple hurricanes every year and is home to many viruses such as denge fever, malaria, cholera, yellow fever and chikungunya. Hep C, typhoid and diphtheria are also prevelent.
JE has partnered with the Healing Arts Studio to develop health programming that starts with stress mitigation. The health information will be taught through our art programming.
