Haiti’s Bel-Air New Bel-Art Centre

In Haiti’s Bel-Air, a New Home For Art

One of Port-au-Prince’s artistic hubs is getting a lift.

The neighbourhood of Bel-Air has inaugurated the new Bel-Art centre, a home for artists that was renovated with support from the US government.

Bel-Air has traditionally been known as one of Haiti’s more artistic neighbourhoods, and the new centre will form part of a planned “artistic trail” in the area. The project to create the centre was funded with around $107,000. Local artist Roga painted some of the new walls at the centre’s gallery.

USAID said it has been embarking on a series of rehabilitation projects in Bel-Air, including a renovated soccer field and basketball court, new solar lights and benches and a new community library, among other initiatives.

The opening ceremony last week included a prize ceremony for winners of a neighborhood youth art contest.
