At Afoutayi, we believe we are stronger together.

Whether you are able to contribute time, talent, materials, or money, your contribution will help us inspire and educate youth of all ages to celebrate the mosaic of Haitian traditional culture through dance, percussion, song, and storytelling and:

  • Advocate to learn, teach, and preserve the diverse traditions of Haiti through the arts of dance,  drum, song, storytelling, cooking, costume making, and more. 

  • Provide high-quality arts learning opportunities to K-12 students based on Haitian cultural heritage  to spark their imaginations and infuse their lives with creativity. 

  • Offer free and reduced priced Haitian dance, music and arts workshops; weekly classes; community  impact projects, and an annual festival that are dynamic, challenging, and inspiring to the  Minnesotan communities. 

  • Create opportunity for artists from Haiti and the United States to exchange knowledge on training,  collaborating, creating, performing, networking, and making artistic decisions that aim to change  peoples’ lives and the world. 

  • Promote the study of Haitian Vodou and culture to meet the growing need to reconnect with  ancestral knowledge. 

  • Partner with community groups, citizens, and local Haitian government to increase sustainable  access to education, arts, healthy living, and economic development to youth of all ages in  Thomassin and Lagonâv, Haiti.
