July 31, 2023 @ EST 1:00 pm - August 4, 2023 @ EST 4:00 pm


Todos tenemos una historia y ahora necesitamos unirnos para contarlas porque cada cuento importa. Durante este programa vamos a ‘tomar espacio, hacer espacio’ por la poesía para contar la historia de nosotros, de nuestra culturas, y nuestra gente, en la recientemente renovada Biblioteca Sucursal de Lincoln. Al fin del programa, los estudiantes van a mostrar, en forma de poema, el tema central siendo como su cultura los hace la persona que ellos son y como ellos tienen que ‘tomar espacio, hacer espacio’ para su gente, el mundo, y si mismo. El programa es para hablantes nativos españoles y de inglés.

We all have a story to tell and everyone’s story matters. Now is the time for us all to unite to explore written stories and share our own in the newly renovated Lincoln Branch Library. In this camp, we will ‘Take Space, Make Space’ through dual language poetry to tell the story of ourselves, our culture, and our people. At the end of the program, we will perform our stories in poem form, with the central theme being how culture and bloodline make us who we are. This program is for native Spanish speakers, as well as native English speakers interested in improving their Spanish or looking for a culturally diverse workshop.
