This May's Free Arts! Family Day will be held on the second Sunday, May 14, from noon to 4 pm. We hope you come join us to commemorate Haitian Heritage Month and to create crafts inspired by storytelling and artists of Haitian descent.

Marie Ketsia Theodore-Pharel (prefers to be called Ketsia) was born in Port-au-Prince Haiti, currently lives in South Florida with her two youngest children and husband.
Marie earned a Bachelor’s from Tufts University and a Masters in English from University of Massachusetts, Boston. She was a recipient of the 2017 and 2019 State of Florida Folklife apprenticeship award for storytelling.

Free Arts! Family Days is funded in part by PNC Foundation, and City of Hollywood General Fund Social Service Agency Grant.
