Ti Atis Youth Development Program

A primary component of HCX’s youth development initiatives, Ti Atis (Little Artists) is an in-school arts education program engaging youth of Haitian descent and their peers with Haitian history and heritage via the arts. The program gives young people, ages 6-14, the tools to build an inclusive and culturally informed future as they learn about diverse art forms from professional Haitian artists. The goal is to increase appreciation of Haiti and its culture, promote positive cultural identity and self-image, facilitate cross-cultural dialogue, and cultivate an inclusive sense of community amongst young people. Currently, this program occurs at P.S.189.
