AnJu, an award-winning actor, writer and educator who works at the intersection of theater arts, technology, and social equity, will read an original poem that speaks to each woman’s exploration of that identity, hers included, and the unearthing that occurred as the women delved into introspection and the interrogation of self.

Presenting Organization

Haiti Cultural Exchange is a nonprofit organization established to develop, present and promote the cultural expressions of the Haitian people. We seek to raise awareness of social issues and foster cultural understanding and appreciation through programs in the arts, education, and public affairs.

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.

During the past decade, HCX has worked with dozens of partners to present Haitian art and artists to both Haitian Diaspora and broader audiences through exhibitions, film screenings, musical performances, multidisciplinary festivals, artist 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. HCX has presented over 450 artists to approximately 5,000 audience members each year.
