Spotlight Program

 

The Spotlight Program is an initiative to bring local artists out into the public view by showcasing their work and what they have accomplished. HAMOC celebrates artists from around the world, but this project is one of the ways we celebrate the community in Chicago.

Kompa Sware Celebration Program

 

Kompa is a modern meringue musical genre in Haiti with European and African roots. Nemours Jean-Baptiste popularized the genre following the 1955 creation of the band Conjunto International. People from all backgrounds are invited to join the museum in a Haitian celebration with music, cuisine and dance.
