Does Hollywood Really Help Haiti?

Ever wonder if a celebrity's involvement in a charity helps his or her career more than the actual cause? Come find out how stars' involvement and aid in Haiti after its devastating earthquake in 2010 may have done more harm than help. Journalist Amy Wilentz moderates a discussion, presented by Zócalo Public Square, with Hollywood philanthropy consultant Trevor Neilson (left), Country Director of Artists for Peace and Justice Bryn Mooser (right) and UCSB Black Studies Scholar Claudine Michel. Topics up for discussion include if food aid is hurting Haiti's farm economy and if medical aid is hindering medical infrastructure. Come early and check out the accompanying exhibit, In Extremis: Death and Life in 21st‐Century Haitian Art. The event is free, but registration is required.
