Messiah Brown Productions In Leogane, Haiti a community of musicians has been working hard to build a professional recording studio to serve their artistic community. With the help of the Carrefour Collaborative, MBP is releasing their first full-length this winter. Pay what you want for this release, but know all proceeds go to support MBP.
Our First Grantee! Gaetjen-ens is an undeniably talented MC and vocalist from Leogane. Her passion and dedication earned her our enthusiastic support. The CC sponsored her return to the studio to record her latest single Men Fanm Nan, which features superstar mc Fantom. We're currently raising funds to shoot her video.
Support the CC in style! The Carrefour Collaborative
"Voice of Haiti" Tee is now in stock. For a modest donation, you can
have this stylish (and poignant!) T shirt featuring Haiti's very own
spokesperson. Explain to your friends why it's important to
put the mic back into the hands of Haitians and support the CC!
The Carrefour Collaborative is a 501(c)3 charitable organization in the State of Illinois. Our mission is to empower artists in Haiti to achieve their artistic goals. Similar to grant programs in developed countries, we seek out artists who have proven their talent and dedication to their field through prior efforts and accomplishments.
By awarding artists based on merit – regardless of their economic situation –
we seek to create a fund that is as prestigious for its recipients as it is
fruitful. We believe that in leveling the playing field for Haitian artists,
the global artistic community will benefit just as much as the sponsored
artists as it is asked to view through a critical lense an artistic voice
that is too often marginalized.

We are currently seeking producers, audio engineers, and working musicians interested in collaborative opportunities. Please email us with any and all inquiries.
