CUENTOS MISSION:
The CUENTOS Foundation creates and facilitates cross-cultural interdisciplinary art programs giving voice to the stories (cuentos) of our diverse communities. These local, national, and trans-national collaborative programs utilize artistic strategies for reflecting upon, expressing, documenting, and sharing transforming cultural heritage and tradition. Cuentos opens doorways to global understanding, participation, and building relationships.

CUENTOS BELIEVES:
Art is Memory . Art Builds Bridges . Art is Meaning . Art Makes Sense.

Strong personal and cultural identity and the ability to positively engage and communicate are the keys for empowering youth, families, and communities with the capacity for participating in positive social change.

CUENTOS VISION:
The global is local.

 

CUENTOS PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

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, curating.

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 between groups.

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.

JOIN US in helping Cuentos to achieve our mission of promoting diversity through the arts and cross-cultural exchange.
