The Little Haiti Cultural Complex broke ground in 2006, as a result of a long awaited vision of the late City of Miami Commissioner Arthur E. Teele, Jr. Since then it has become a key engine in Downtown Little Haiti and nearby neighborhoods to spur economic and community growth. Over 100,000 people per year visit or take part in programs at the cultural facility.

LHCC offers a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to gain exposure to Afro-Caribbean culture, expand their knowledge of the arts and develop new talents. The complex is committed to fostering imagination, creativity and positive experiences for children and adults year round.


The mission of the City of Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Complex is to present and preserve Afro-Caribbean cultures‚ inspire the next generation of leaders and leverage arts and culture as tools for transformation and community building.


Our vision is to be a cultural hub where the community can meet to create‚ dialogue‚ and collaborate to build an equitable reality for Afro-Caribbeans and their descendants.
