Connecting with Youth Through Writing

December 07, 2015



Last fall, Opera Cultura produced two youth writing workshops in association with Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana ( MACLA).

Lead by Rapper/Beat Boxer Carlos Aguirre, youth wrote on subjects that had particular relevance to their daily lives. Writing styles included rap, beat boxing, and prose. The workshops were part of the Bless Me Ultima project.

The workshops were funded in part by the Knight Foundation, the Castellano Family Foundation and Friends of Opera Cultura.
