Event - Spoken Word Poetry Workshop with Las Cafeteras (OFFSITE)

Spoken Word Poetry Workshop with Las Cafeteras (OFFSITE)

02.19.14, 5:00 pm

The Queens Museum invites you to join us for a workshop at Immigrant Movement International with Las Cafeteras.

Las Cafeteras fuse traditional and modern beats with timely stories for LA streets. Known for their energetic multi-lingual performances, they combine Afro-Mexican (Son Jarocho), Hip Hop, Folk, Native American and more styles with a community-focused message.


This interactive session allows participants to engage in the power of storytelling. Without our voices, His-Story, Her-Story, Your-Story, and Our-Story become defined through power, priviledge and silence. Students will be given tools and poetry prompts to begin to extract their own personal narrative. The session will end with each participant writing and sharing their poetry to a live musical performance by Las Cafeteras.


This event will take place at Immigrant Movement International                                                                                     108-59 Roosevelt Ave, Queens, NY 11368


Space in this workshop is limited to 20 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please email sjmo@queensmuseum.org to reserve a space
