SECTION: Music for Sustainable Community Development COUNTRIES: Multi-National: Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia PROJECT: MUSIC FOR SOCIAL CHANGE: OASIS-CARIBBEAN DESCRIPTION: Jamaica, St. Lucia and Haiti are the three beneficiaries of the orchestral and choral training program, the Organization of American States Orchestra Program operates in the Caribbean, also known as OASIS-Caribbean. OASIS was officially launched in October 2009 with a 10-day workshop for trainers in each country. In the first week of November 2009, 162 new musical instruments arrived in the newly established orchestra centers on each island. In Kingston, Jamaica, the Orchestral Training Center was established in St. Andrew Technical High located in West Kingston; in Castries, St. Lucia, the Program is operating in Marchand, at the Marchand Elementary School; and in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the training center benefits Bél- Air and was established at the Ecole St. Trinité. The program currently serves 270 children and youths from underprivileged neighborhoods in capitals of the three countries. It contributes to the prevention of violent behavior prevalent in these neighborhoods by redirecting the spare time of children and youths to an activity that takes advantage of their inherent strengths and talents. This is being achieved by implementing a systematic (5 days/week, 2 hours/day) orchestral and choral training program to complement intellectual and cultural growth and ultimately contributing to instilling civic values, increasing schooling retention levels, and creating future employment opportunities. The program has adapted the School-Orchestra group teaching approach used by the renowned Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System and others. This group teaching approach ensures that participants get involved in joint activities from the very moment they enroll. There is early and continued exposure to great musical works and at the same time maintains continuous contact between beneficiaries and their community through frequent performances that ensure motivation and permanence in the program. CURRENT STATUS: This OAS Program is coordinated by the OAS Art Museum of the Americas with support from National System of Youth Orchestras of Venezuela (FESNOJIV), Fundación Batuta of Colombia, and the Youth Orchestra of the Americas. Local partners for Jamaica are the Ministry of Education, the Edna Manley School of Music, and the recently created National Youth Orchestra of Jamaica; for St. Lucia, the Ministry for Social Transformation and the St. Lucia School of Music; and for Haiti, the Ecole de Musique Sainte Trinité, and Wyclef Jean‘s Yéle Haiti. OAS funding is for the first three years of the Program‘s execution. The project will start the 3 rd year of implementation in August 2011. After the third year, OAS support will end so agreements will be sought from the local public and private sectors to secure the program‘s sustainability. The Program is also implementing a branding/marketing strategy via celebrity partnerships for promotion and fundraising, as it is happening with Haiti‘s Wyclef Jean. RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: The Program is implementing an evaluation program that will provide outcome data by June, 2011. Research is conducted by a team from the DePaul University in Chicago. The program will 71
