I am proud of seeing the following idea into reality: Norwich Arts Center's New Visions and Voices Initiative--my idea, and so I get to chair the first month, dedicated to Latinos in the Arts. Future months will turn the spotlight on Asians, particularly China (next October); The African-American Experience (April 2018); and Under 30: Voices of the Future (Oct. 2018). Here's April's schedule-- for location and more information

Thank you--sorry for the shouty letters--that's what comes of copy-pasting from the Norwich Arts Center site. It was a struggle getting some sponsorship, but we did get enough to pay the poets a pittance and make that event free.

My next struggle is to get people through the doors! Klezmenschen is playing for a school multi-cultural night this week, and I have flyers to give out in several languages for the Latino Arts month programs.
