Cidelca
Multicultural Tourism Ambassador and City Tours Guide

Cidelca is a Multicultural Tourism Ambassador and City Tours Guide. He describes Miami as having an array of cultures and diversity with unique senses of identity both on a macro and micro scale. Cidelca has a master’s degree in Architecture from Florida International University. 

Little Haiti Cultural Complex

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.
