About Lakaï Arts

Lakaï is a Kreyol word derived from the Haitian language that means, Home. Lakaï Arts promotes healing while remaining grounded to the idea of home; to trace the ripple effects not only of harm, but also of healing and joy, through families, neighborhoods and communities. Healing others through the performing arts with community events, theatre productions, workshops and performances. Lakaï Arts holds cultural dance and music events with resources in communities as a means to get people together to take part in exploring the Afro-Diaspora. Lakaï Arts aims to build up under resourced communites towards self sufficiency using the arts within the Afro-Diaspora while honoring the pre-existing local organizational efforts in those communities. The company designs and leads workshops to identify and counter the ways trauma has been built up in our cities only to then follow us home.
