Semaine des cultures étrangères 2012

For the new edition of the “Semaine des Cultures Étrangères”, the Canadian Cultural Centre is giving carte blanche to the Embassy of Haiti and will be hosting eclectic programming, which will be a real journey through Haitian culture.

An exhibition of photographs (September 21 to 30) gives an overview of the rich cultural heritage of Haiti as embodied by the Citadelle Henry Christophe, a powerful national symbol. Gingerbread houses and places and objects of worship also feature in the exhibition.

Visitors will also have a chance to discover some of the high points of Haitian history, as well as Haitian traditions and contemporary art, through various cultural events: a round table on heritage, an electro voodoo concert by Erol Josué, literary events, film showings, storytelling and Creole slam.

For the “Semaine des Cultures Étrangères”, the Canadian Cultural Centre will be open on Saturday, September 29, 12h– 6 p.m.
