Plume en Quest: Celebration of Haitian Women at the Alliance Française of Jacmel.

On March 23, 2024, in an atmosphere full of emotion and reflection, the Alliance française de Jacmel witnessed a unique cultural event of its kind. In collaboration with the Jacmel Jazz Festival, Plume en Quête presented a captivating show entitled “The Haitian woman is an asset”.

Under the artistic direction of Jean Kenia, this captivating show drew on the provocative writings of the famous philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. Through striking artistic performances, the audience was transported on an introspective journey about the central role of women in Haitian society. The spectators, who came in large numbers to witness this event, were deeply touched by the evocative power of the show. “It was an incredible experience,” said one spectator. “This show captured the strength and resilience of Haitian women in a striking way.”

Beyond its artistic aspect, this show also raised important questions about gender equality and women’s empowerment. By highlighting the essential contribution of Haitian women to society, he called for collective reflection on the need to promote social justice and gender equality.

In short, this evening at the Alliance Française was much more than just entertainment: it was a vibrant testimony to the strength, resilience and beauty of Haitian women, as well as a call to action in favor of a fairer and more equitable future for all.

    Haïti Wonderland: How to Rewrite the Narrative of Haïti on the Web?

    For the last three decades the internet has transformed the way people live, access information and promote worthy causes. Institutions that embrace this technology lead the way in their respective industries and last, while countries that embrace this technology and wisely implement it enable themselves to thrive and build sustainable economies. After decades of existence, the internet has been shared with mainly two groups of people; those who use it as a tool to build, and those who use it as a tool of destruction. Those who see the internet as a bridge to make a positive impact in the world and those who see it as the comfy bed to never leave, hence, the difference between the consumer and producer. Unfortunately our beloved home, Haiti, has been of the former mindset. Is it a lack of vision, lack of skills and competences or is it lack of hard working individuals? Regardless what it is or had been for decades, now is the time to change the paradigm on all fronts necessary and reshape the future. If the past decades have been ruled by non-production and negative press, now is the time to change the paradigm by producing and using the limitless of the web to sell the beauty, the culture and the greatness of Haïti to the rest of the world. If the past has been ruled with a selective truth and an effort to showcase the worst and by extension create the worst narrative, now, my fellow Haitian, regardless of where you are on this planet, is the time for us to undertake this mission, to take responsibility and recreate the narrative of our mother land. A narrative based on truth and transparency, a narrative that tells the story of who we are and certainly who we are not, a narrative to invite the world to explore and see for themselves. It is our duty. If not now, when? If not you and I, then, who? Our main mission at Haïti Wonderland is to rewrite the narrative of Haïti on the web. Then use the internet to bring Haïti back to the top of the touristic destination map once again. Those are what motivate us, the oxygen that we breath, they are the reason we wake up in the morning and fight. We didn’t choose this path because we know it will be easy but we choose it because: 1. It is a noble cause 2. It is necessary and 3. It must be done. But must importantly we take this path because we know you and every Haitian in this world, who knows the truth about Haïti are tired with what you see when typing Haïti on the web, and at the same time understand that something must change, and it must be done as soon as possible. We know you are ready for this, and together we will change the narrative of Haïti on the web and we will bring Haïti back to the top of the touristic destination map. This is a call of duty to you, regardless of your field of endeavor or where you’re located in this world. This is a call to join ( to first see for yourself the movement you’re joining, then create your own account and start creating and sharing. Together we will rewrite the narrative of Haïti on the web. Thank you for joining this worthy cause. Let’s invite the world to discover the true face of Haiti.
