FePouLi has been dedicated to creating workshops that embody life skills that help empower the youth through practical conflict resolution strategies using poetry, visual arts such as photography and film. Poetic Lakay has been a very popular monthly event which takes place at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex giving local poets a platform.
Ayiti Was Born in Me
This program aims to increase cultural awareness and diversity via Haitian culture, art, music, history and literature for students in Broward and Miami Dade County. Various artists conduct lectures, musical presentations, art exhibits and storytelling to increase the knowledge about the Haitian culture to Haitian American and non-Haitians students.
Little Haiti Field Trips
By immersing our youth in Our/Haitian culture, an appreciation develops for nuances and differences that add richness and value to the experience. With an emphasis on doing and feeling, in addition to just seeing, our program goal is to create global citizens. Our programs engender love for travel, hunger for learning, and an appreciation of different cultures. We invite you to join the Little Haiti Field Trips family as we explore Little Haiti and discover what it means to be a traveler, not a tourist.
Once a month in Little Haiti we host a culturally driven open MIC for the community which includes presentations of music, poems and dialogue that revolves around concepts ranging from pride, romance, social issues, politics in pursuit of preserving culture.
