Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming A Community

Thursday Nov 15th, 2012 - Thursday Nov 15th, 2012
11:15 AM - 12:45 PM - Presentation Room, Oviatt Library

Image for Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams:  How the Arts Are Transforming A Community

Luis J. Rodriguez Award-winning writer and poet and Activists and Artists from the Northeast San Fernando Valley

The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. Yet, until 2001 when Tia Chucha̢۪s opened it̢۪s doors, the Northeast Valley had no trade bookstores, movie houses, art galleries, or decent cultural spaces. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chucha̢۪s inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national art s policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. For more information on the event please contact Dr. Denise Sandoval at denise.sandoval@csun.edu.
