Thank you to all who helped raise $3,000 last summer through GAC’s Haiti glass ring and pendant project. N a Sanje Foundation, a nonprofit in Haiti, found out about Grace Art Camp and reached out to us . . .“Oh my goodness, your website is full of Haitian art and culture, I’m sure the Haitian people would be overwhelmed to know that their very special culture is being admired and taught in such a respectful way! Haiti is a country that so deserves to be understood but has been so misunderstood!!! ”
One of the organization’s staff members, known fondly as YaYa, is finishing his degree in Early Childhood Education in the US, and started Camp GRANEA last summer in his hometown in Haiti – little did we know that GAC has a sister camp in Haiti! You can view pictures of Camp GRANEA HERE. GAC contributed funds to help them meet this summer’s gofundme goal.
Grace Art Camp’s cultural focus necessitates that we continue to advance our equity work in as many ways as we can fathom. With many thanks to the dedication of our volunteer Equity Committee, we share with you our approach to this vital and ongoing work: https://grace-institute.org/about-us/
Thank you for being a part of the Grace Art Camp Community and Best of Wishes for the rest of your summer!
