Það sem verður gert

A short walk through Congo Square culminating in a talk at my studio in the Treme neighborhood about Hoodoo, Voodoo, Black Carnival Traditions, the deeds and misdeeds of my own Louisiana Creole ancestors and other lesser known aspects of New Orleans history and culture. In my studio rum bar you will enjoy a shot of rum and a chance to check out my art and black masking Indian attire. My house has long been a place where friends come to ground themselves in the cultural vibration of the city. I am so excited to now share this experience with you!

GREAT FOR GROUPS AS WELL AS INDIVIDUAL TRAVELERS!!

Other things to note:

THIS IS NOT A TOUR. It’s not focused on site seeing but rather an EXPERIENCE that uses a few sites as a backdrop, so if you are looking for a site seeing tour this will not meet your expectations.
With that said, while the majority of my presentation will be at my studio, we will also walk the equivalent of six blocks through the park and stand in one place for long periods. Please wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated because the heat can be oppressive, especially in the summer. BTW - NO PHOTOS of my studio or myself are allowed, thank U.

I'm an artist and 12th-generation Afro-Creole. My family fled Louisiana in 1970 to escape racial oppression. I returned 17 years ago to reconnect with the land of my ancestors. I make art with wood salvaged from my Katrina-damaged home in Treme, and mask as a Medicine Man in the Black Masking Indian tradition. My art is in the permanent collection of the American Folk Art Museum and in the homes of art-lovers worldwide.

Staðsetning

The experience takes place roughly an hour in the park and an hour at my studio, which is seldom open to the public. After Hurricane Katrina, I converted former slave quarters into an art studio, Hoodoo shop, and guest rooms.

So very highly recommend. Jean-Marcel has an amazing amount of knowledge about the real history of the area. He clarified so many misconceptions. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to have a true understanding of what really went down in the area. His artwork is also pretty amazing - bring some extra cash to purchase a wooden quilt, you won't regret it!

This is not a tour but an EXPERIENCE! The story telling was insightful, informational and entertaining. If you’re looking to know more information about what hoodoo and voodoo is, this experience is a must!

I don’t think I can write anything better than what is already written. A MUST do if you like off the beaten path thing to do. Such a great learning experience & was very heart- felt. Be ready with an open heart & mind.

Jean-Marcel's passion to educate society on the true history of New Orleans and the growth of the cultural influences it impacts on this country was inspiring. This was the most powerful, raw, and amazing experience my fiance Jacques and I have participated in. We are so thankful we were able to have the opportunity to learn from Jean-Marcel!
