Got a story? The State of Connecticut has launched 'Our Places, Our Stories'

The State Historic Preservation Office of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development is seeking grant applicants for its “Our Places, Our Stories” initiative – a program designed to raise awareness for the rich cultural assets of our ethnic nationalities.  This effort is being launched in partnership with ethnic historical and cultural organizations throughout the state. Phase I will document the historical links between the people of various ethnic communities and the cultural landscapes they created:  neighborhoods, buildings, shops, sites and events. The first phase of the initiative will document the state’s assets, followed by a second phase that will market them as a visitor experience.

I've started reading through the Reflections sheets - so many good thoughts.  I will share them and ask for more feedback.  The first observation - which was an interesting perspective - "The story gave me the following thoughts and insights:  Self-expression is in our DNA.  It is a reaction to the world around us, to our won thoughts and ideas.  You involve an audience or individual by causing him to either listen, watch or use his imagination.  Art is communication at its most elemental level."

Poetry is alive and well in New Haven and around that State. Here it, see it and feel it at these places.

A group of women in Chatham Square neighborhood decided that an art program was need in their community so they invited local artist to tables set up at Chatham Square Park. Another resident decided to video tape the event and still another set the video to music, this is the result. A connection was made to Creative Arts Workshop through a former resident of the neighborhood and now CAW used PACK funds to work in collaboration with neighborhood women women on Art in the Park 2011.

The music loving community concerned about the dwindling audiences for classical music might want to connect with GNH Community member Angelica Durrell. She recently organized a concert for International Women's Day at Santa Rosa de Lima church in New Haven. The concert was attended by over 200 men, women and and children, mainly Latinos and African-American residents of New Haven. Music composed by 4 women from the United States, Cuba, Mexico and Ecuador was featured. Like Benjamin Zander Angie believes that 99% of people love classical music, they just don't know it yet.

Latin American Youth Center: A Safe Path to Success

September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. To celebrate, we’re spotlighting the extraordinary staff and clients of the Latin American Youth Center, a longtime LISC partner in Washington, D.C. In its 50 years, LAYC has welcomed and served 27,000 youth, many of them recent immigrants, helping connect them to education, mentors, housing, work, mental health services and each other. This kind of work makes an enormous difference in young lives and in our communities, and we’re honored to be part of it: we’ve invested nearly $2 million in LAYC’s people and programs, including financing the purchase of the group’s home base in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.
