Celebrating Haitian Heritage Month we'll be offering in person and online activities that highlight Haitian Art and Culture. All workshops will be taught by Haitian Artists that are masters at combining art and wellness. All the activities have been curated by the Create Your Well Podcast.
This is a charity event and all proceeds will go towards building the Kriye Bode Cultural Community Center. The Kriye Bode Project has been creating high quality cultural experiences in Haiti, US, and around the world for over 15 years. The Kriye Bode Center will serve as a hub for educational and cultural revitalization and will be located in St Marc Haiti.
Join us for a week that will nourish your mind body and soul.
