Guest curator Tina Andrews gathered the artists from Washington, DC, Harlem, Brooklyn and East Hampton to expose their works to east end audiences. Says Andrews “It’s an exciting, soulful exhibit filled with not only works which envisage our slave past, but abstracts and photos which visualize the present and promise of a post racial future. I urge everyone to come out and see it.”

Live on the Vine is a 6 week mid-winter music festival that take place in Long Island’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, hotels and other venues on the East End. It has been recognized for its cultural tourism impact during an off season and has greatly stimulated the business economy during the cold winter months. Conceived in 2006, this event is well on its way to becoming a regional and even national attraction with great growth potential. In 2012 Winterfest Jazz on the Vine was awarded the National Destination Marketing Award by Americans for the Arts and Destination Marketing International, a prestigious award validating our work and our vision which includes expanding our overall musical selection to encompass talented performers in jazz, blues, soul and country (hence the name modification, “Live” on the Vine.)

The film recently won Best Documentary
Feature at the 8th Annual Harlem International Film Festival and will
screen Nov. 2nd Saturday afternoon at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York
followed by a question and answer round table discussion. This Black
History month the film will debut on various US television networks.

”American history is an important component to bridging the gap in cultural
diversity, and stories that provide an informative reference point,
especially for Black American history is how healing can take place for the
past, present, and future. We are proud of all our documentaries and have
taken the time to carefully select film works that will impact society in
the long-term,” stated Founder and multi-media talent Princess AngeliqueMonét.

Lessons of Hayti *is nominated for Best Documentary Film along with *Forget
Us Not* narrated by Ron Perlman, and *16 Acres*.

LESSONS OF HAYTI is a one hour documentary that examines the unique history of Black
self-sufficiency and political power in the United States from its origins 
just following President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 up to
the second inauguration of America’s first Black President 150 years later,
and how that power has eroded since the Civil Rights era, leaving Black
America in a current state of economic turmoil.

As told by prominent historians, scholars, former Hayti residents, and a
survivor of the Tulsa Riots of 1921, “The Lessons of Hayti,” details a
history of Black success in America. Including the creation of 100 
independent Black communities, nearly 100 Black Colleges and Universities,
and wielding massive political power in the former Confederate States, all
within 50 years of the end of slavery.

”The Lessons of Hayti” also examines the demise of these historic Black
Communities over the last 100 years due to both racial violence and
political backstabbing triggered by pivotal historic events including the
landmark case “Plessy vs. Ferguson” in the 1898, the end of World War 1 in
1918, and the civil rights movement of the 1950’s and 60’s.

Artisan Festival World Peace Initiative is a New York State fiscally sponsored 501c3 organization. Artisan Festival International World Peace Initiative is comprised of mini-festivals representative of the Arts (Fine Art, Film, Fashion, Music, Theater) brought together under one umbrella to promote cultural diversity through the arts. Our goal is to bring such rich culture to each community we work with and encourage as much community support as possible to facilitate an understanding that we are a cultural arts organization seeking to add to the communities we serve while simultaneously assisting with peace efforts on a global scale.

 “The mission of Artisan Festival International World Peace Initiative is to bridge the gap in cultural diversity worldwide. By promoting culture other than ones own through film, art, fashion, theatre and music, one can begin to have an understanding and appreciation of others. This is the way to begin creating world peace,” stated Princess Angelique Monét, Festival Founder and Director.
