To design programs that promote strong personal and cultural
identity, as well as cultivate the ability to positively
engage and communicate across cultures. We believe these are the
keys for empowering youth, families, and communities with the capacity
for participating in positive social change and mutual understanding.
To provide reciprocal learning/ educating
of artistic strategies and art-making practices, techniques, traditions,
such as copper-smithing, poetry writing & publishing, performance,
To provide a safe, nurturing, extremely
creative environment to test out ideas, performance, theater,
music, a poem, or an exhibition idea in Cuentos’ storefront
windows or space.
To empower through collective practices:
A place to collaborate with others from similar and different backgrounds.
To make cross-cultural links and networks
To use art across disciplines
to give projects a holistic and contextualized vision.
To develop the acquisition of transferable
skills and knowledge: artistic, social, and cultural.
To provide an opportunity to express differences
in cultural heritage, history, and traditions.
To act as an incubator for creating community
connections and fellowship.
helping Cuentos to achieve our mission of promoting diversity
through the arts and cross-cultural exchange.
