Our programs and services seek to support emerging and established artists, promote cross-cultural exchanges, preserve our cultural heritage, and encourage dialogue around contemporary social issues.

Through Arts Presentation, Cultural Engagement, and Artist Development programs, HCX has presented Haitian art and artists to both Haitian Diaspora and broader audiences through exhibitions, film screenings, musical performances, multidisciplinary festivals, artists talks and educational programs. We have fostered artistic exchanges between Haiti and the US, bringing Haitian and Diaspora artists together in mainstage and community venues.

In the face of a public understanding of Haiti that is often framed by political discord and natural disasters, HCX seeks to empower Haitian communities by representing the breadth and influence of Haiti’s artistic heritage, history, and culture.


Through referrals, HCX continues to make connections between organizations & individuals seeking talent and Haitian artists.

Part of the way we do this is through in-school, community-based, and institutional performances, screenings, and workshops in NYC. For more information on how HCX can connect you or your organization with Haitian artists of various disciplines, and for hosting a workshop/assembly, please contact info@haiticulturalx.org.
