Frankétienne: Haitian Identity
May 2 | FIAF | NYC
Don’t miss renowned Haitian poet, novelist, dramatist, and painter Frankétienne for a discussion about how his decision to stay in Haiti and create from his homeland influenced his work as an artist, placing him at the centre of study and debate on the Creole identity. With more than 30 titles, writings, and plays, Frankétienne is considered one of the great voices of the Caribbean for his radical stance on creativity, for his poetic and powerful use of language, and for his lifetime contribution to Haitian cultural development.
