New London Nonprofit Celebrates Latin American Art, Culture

Mar 21, 2019

Venture into one New London, Connecticut nonprofit and you will find yourself surrounded by art. Not just any art, either. Art inspired by the rich cultures of Latin America.

This hour, we go inside Expressiones Cultural Center. We meet up with one of the nonprofit's co-founders, and wander through the mind of its current artist in residence: a forestry engineer from Lima, Peru. 

Later, we learn about NH ChILD, a new early childhood initiative based in the city of New Haven, Connecticut. We talk with Allyx Schiavone, the program’s interim director, and we also hear from you.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

GUESTS:

  • Ramon Ostolaza - Artist in Residence at Expressiones Cultural Center, a nonprofit based in New London, Connecticut
  • Jose Garaycochea - Co-founder and Executive Director of Expressiones Cultural Center, a nonprofit based in New London, Connecticut
  • Allyx Schiavone - Executive Director of the Friends Center for Children and Interim Program Director of NH ChILD (New Haven Children’s Ideal Learning District)
