The week-long YéleFest celebration in Jacmel, Haiti, culminated in a free concert for an estimated 40,000 people on December 1, 2006. YéleFest brought young Haitian artists, filmmakers, musicians and actors together for one week of activities in Jacmel, Haiti, with representatives of non-governmental organizations, volunteer groups, development agencies and donor governments. The program was designed to allow these diverse groups the opportunity to explore ways to use culture and the arts to create new models for achieving sustainable development.
