The Artist Corps is a program for artists to create impactful community-based projects looking to tell stories, create healing spaces, and show up for community members with joy and inclusion. Sponsored by the Mellon Foundation in partnership with The Arts Council of Greater New Haven, the projects will be free and immersive for the community.

Round 2 Projects Timeline is March 2024 to February 2025

My project Generaciones que cuentan: Hispanic Intergenerational Empowerment and Cultural Ownership through Literacy in Fair Haven seeks to encourage Hispanic seniors and adults to experience the joy of sharing their stories and heritage through storytelling and reading to their generations, empowering them to create and use books, take advantage of their public library, and incorporate reading into their routines, fostering literacy and cultural ownership.

"This book is the perfect way to inspire curiosity about the world's lesser-known animals and the stunning biodiversity of the rainforest."

"Beautifully illustrated and written. Perfect for toddlers just learning their ABCs and older kids and adults who appreciate learning about animals. The bonus printable games are super fun for the whole family"

”Le regalé este libro a mi hermana que es maestra , le encantó y se lo va imprimir a sus alumnos para que hagan sus propios libros”. - l

”I love the simplicity of the Christmas daily countdown messages- one prophetic message and how it was fulfilled in Christ... not too much information and a great starting point for family discussions (questions provided). Great how they included the collection of lovely illustrations and prophecies so families can download and print, and kids can color while you have your devotion time. This will become a meaningful part of our family's Christmas traditions.”

- R. W.

”This is a must-have during this time of year. I was so happy to read it with my daughters and son, some parts were challenging and made us go and search in the Bible. Just the time we spent as a family reading it was enough to make this book so worth it and valuable. Thanks so much to the author for putting this together. Beautifully done!"
