Telling Our Stories

Cafe Cultura 

 

To support the expansion of Café Cultura’s spoken word/poetry classes for Chicana/o, Native, and other underserved youth into ten schools and organizations throughout the Denver metropolitan area. “Telling Our Stories” provides young people the opportunity to build confidence in oral and written expression, develop leadership skills, and gain appreciation for their culture through the following workshop components: guidance from accomplished Café Cultura poets through the writing process, publishing the finalized work from participants in a book specific to each community, and hosting periodic open mic events to showcase youth participants.
