Teaching Artist Maxine Montilus and the Ti Atis Program

Brooklyn-born artist Maxine Montilus is a dancer and choreographer who is now working as part of the Ti Atis Afterschool Workshop. The program, which began in February 2013 is put on by the Haiti Cultural Exchange (HCX), and is operated at P.S. 189.

Last year, the program had two sections, a collaborative mural project led by Jules Joseph, a visual artist, for 4th and 5th grade students, and a photo narrative workshop for students in the 6th and 7th grades, led by Richard Louissaint, photographer. This year, it is Ms. Montilus, a first-generation Haitian-American, who holds a B.F.A from the University of Arts in Modern Dance Performance and an M.A. from City University London in Arts Management who will take up the mantle.
