A spectacular monthly series begins Thursday, January 16th, 2020, at 5:30 pm. at the Dunkirk Public Library’s new “CREATE Project Room.” Mayor Willie Rosas and members of H.O.P.E. (Hispanics Organized for Progress and Education) will perform and talk about Puerto Rican traditions and music. A fascinating chat about the role of ritual and ‘identity development” by a CREATE Project representative will follow. All are welcome!
Throughout 2020, the CREATE Project Library Room will feature special presentations, demonstrations, and performances. The program will bring cross-cultural understanding through local tradition-bearers as they share their culture and traditions. Related topics such as personal development, family relationships, community building, and child-rearing best practices are also explored in each session. Refreshments popular in the culture of the evening will give participants a flavor of the region, as well. Appropriate for children, teens, parents, grandparents, whole families, community members and professionals, the program will also include storytelling and activities for younger guests in the Library children’s room.
