The You Will Rise Project is partnering with Palenke Arts for a hands-on workshop for middle school students who are (or were) victims of bullying. Artists from the community will work with students, inspiring them to create raw, uncensored works about their experiences with bullying. The resulting collection, including collaborative installation pieces and individual creations, will be presented in a multi-media pop up exhibition at Palenke Arts that is open to the public.
Palenke Voices is a monthly Open Mic hosted by River Navaille. Every last Sunday of the month from 6:00-7:45pm, we center the voices of youth, people of color, femmes, and LGBTQ+ folks and feature local poets, musicians, dancers, and storytellers. All are welcome to come and share their voices - family friendly!
