Residency in Jacmel, Haiti (Spring 2012)
Lauren Nelson will travel to Jacmel, Haiti, this summer to teach in the Jean Baptiste Dessaix Music School, a community program that provides music education to students from low-income families in Jacmel and the surrounding areas. Nelson has worked as a music educator with Youth and Family Enrichment Services for the last two years, building strong connections within the Haitian community of Hyde Park. Through this trip, Nelson hopes to deepen her understanding of Haitian culture and bring this awareness to her work with YOFES. Check out these photos from Lauren's adventure!
