Video: Youth Development Through the Arts - Nomadic Massive in Port au Prince - Democracy in Haiti

In October 2010, Haitian NGO APROSIFA (with the support of ALTERNATIVES) invited the Montreal-based hip hop super group Nomadic Massive to come to Port au Prince and conduct arts workshops with young aspiring artists living in the neighborhood of Carrefour Feuilles. As an exercise both in empowerment and healing, the week of workshops resulted in a unique and powerful learning experience for both Nomadic Massive and the participants. This short is the 1st of a series of shorts documenting this project, and a model of youth development that should be replicated around the world.
