EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2013

HOURS PLEDGED: 200

THE STORY:

Art Creation Foundation for Children is a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children/teens in need in Jacmel, Haiti.  Our ACFFC youth began working on mosaic installations in 2010, after the earthquake, to memorialize lives lost and to celebrate hope for the future. That first installation was called Tree of Life. Since then, through our Mosaïque Jacmel project, we have created mosaic walls and benches all over Jacmel, truly changing the face of the city.

Now we have been invited by the Toussaint Louverture High School for Arts and Social Justice in Delray Beach Florida, to make a visit to South Florida.  This school has a student body of predominantly Haitian-American new immigrant youth, brothers and Sisters. 

Ten ACFFC youth + ACFFC youth photojournalist.  
Visas were granted and they are good to go.

Together with TLHS students, they will create a public art mosaic installation in South Florida as an act of thanksgiving and coming together. Coming together and giving back.

They will also create a mural to the lives of Haitians lost at sea, in the tragic pursuit of migration to the United States, presented to TLHS. 

Students of TLHS, new immigrant Haitian youth, will be trained in the art of mosaics by the ACFFC team, to continue the work beyond a single installation.  

In addition, the ACFFC team will  sit in on classes at TLHS. Many other activities are being planned. In addition, selected team members will visit Washington DC to be received at the Haitian Embassy, to visit our nation’s iconic and meaningful government institutions and there, and to be hosted by Congresswoman Lois Frankel/her staff.

Please help us to make this dream come true.  It is a milestone!
