El Puente

Every Monday from 1-2pm

The Jason Taylor Foundation’s bluapple Poetry Network is building a bridge and knocking down walls with words—El Puente! This bilingual, intergenerational creative experience will be designed for the robust Latinx community of South Florida.  Utilizing poetry as a bridge, El Puente will narrow gaps between adult immigrants hailing from numerous Spanish speaking nations and their children, who often feel worlds apart due to language barriers, cultural differences, anti-immigration sentiments, and generational split.
