Frente Caribeño Successfully Concludes Pilot Workshop on “Cultura Dominicana”



Philipsburg, St.Maarten – Frente Caribeño Foundation, led by Ms. Mayra Provence, is thrilled to announce the successful conclusion of its inaugural workshop on “Cultura Dominicana.” This pilot program was designed to deepen the understanding and appreciation of Dominican culture among third and fourth-generation descendants. The certification ceremony of the workshop took place over the weekend, where the 7 participants (between the ages of 11 and 17) and 3 adults reflected on a strong community interest in reconnecting with their cultural roots. The workshop was designed to last 2 weeks, with 6 interactive sessions, that would culminate in a certification of participation for the participants.

The Vice President of Frente Caribeño, Mr. Cesar Gomez and the instructor of the workshop, Mr. Amauris Santos, expressed their satisfaction with the level of engagement and enthusiasm demonstrated by the participants. Through interactive sessions and engaging activities, attendees explored various aspects of Dominican culture, including history, music, dance, and culinary traditions. The positive feedback received from participants underscores the workshop’s success in fostering a deeper connection to their heritage.

This workshop marks an important milestone for Frente Caribeño, which aims to create ongoing opportunities for cultural education and preservation. The success of this pilot program has encouraged the organizers to plan more such initiatives in the future. “We are delighted with the turnout and the interest shown by the community. This is just the beginning of many initiatives that will help maintain and celebrate our rich cultural heritage,” said the program coordinator, Kenty Lichtenberg of Be Your Own Brand. 

Frente Caribeño is committed to ensuring that the rich traditions of the Dominican Republic continue to thrive within our community. By offering programs like “Cultura Dominicana,” we aim to strengthen cultural ties and provide a platform for third and fourth-generation descendants to reconnect with their roots. We look forward to expanding our efforts and creating more opportunities for cultural education and connection in the coming months.
