Date: SEE BELOW

Location: SEE BELOW

Project Summary
Based at New Settlement in the Southwest Bronx, PROJECT V.I.P. (Voice, Identity, Power) encourages girls aged 10-15 to express themselves and uncover their strengths through theatre and dramatic writing, while deepening their knowledge of poetry and literature and building collaboration skills. The program combines formal performing arts training (improvisation, physical and vocal work, stagecraft) with the development of original creative work based on themes encountered in literature. By analyzing each written work and drawing connections to their own experience, participants gain a better understanding of the artistic process, explore the relationship between art and social justice, and develop the confidence to creatively express their own points of view. Project V.I.P. offers three sessions annually, in spring, summer and fall, and each ensemble performs their work for friends, family and community members.

Spring Session: January 25-May 23, with performances May 20th

Project Summary
The Morrisania Band Program will add life to the South Bronx through artistic engagement and performances from local talent. Within our borough, there are hundreds of musicians that compose, sing, and/or play instruments, but budget cuts severely stagnate their artistic growth, forcing them to travel outside of their communities for those opportunities. The goals for this project are to expand creativity, and reinforce confidence in an underserved population.

Hosted by vocal performer, Elissa M. Carmona, this 18-week series will target adult musicians for free hands-on music clinics, professional mentoring, and live artist showcases. The program will run at the DreamYard Project on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons, beginning in September 2016. Enrollment will be first-come, first serve, and will require a weekly commitment for a minimum of 6 weeks.


Date & Time of Project:
The program will run for 18+ weeks, tentatively on Wednesday evenings from 6pm - 8pm, and Saturdays, from 4pm - 6pm, beginning in September 2016.

Peggy Robles - Alvarado

Funded for: Robleswrites Presents: The Abuela Stories Project

Date: SEE BELOW

Location: SEE BELOW

Project Summary
Grandmother, Nana, Mamá- no matter how we describe them, Abuelas play a pivotal role in our identity through chancletazos, gentle hugs, or vivid memories. The Abuela Stories Project, presented by Robleswrites Productions, intends to highlight the essence of Abuelas, their guidance, distinctive personalities, and detriments through original works of poetry, prose, and photography. Award winning poet Peggy Robles- Alvarado created this project after becoming an Abuela in her thirties and as an act of creative rebellion against those who found little value in stories about these modern day matriarchs. Seeking to depict Abuelas and their evolving roles within present day parameters, Peggy partnered with Bronx based visual artist and photographer Daisy Arroyo who captured Abuelas as artists, dancers, and rebels redefining themselves.  Her images serve as inspiration for a group of intergenerational female writers to create passionate and sometimes painful original works of Abuelas and the lives they've touched.
