Looking for some events in person to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month? 

This fall, GRRL is offering two programs for Hispanic Heritage Month. The first is a series of poetry slam workshops with Danny Solis, most recently the director of the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) Poetry Slam. Workshops will take place at Waite Park, Paynesville, Becker, St. Cloud, Rockford Middle School, Royalton, and Buffalo. The second is a special performance from Kalpulli KetzalCoatlicue, a dance group whose performances "weav[e] together the Nahuatl cosmovision and creation stories of the Mexican ancestors." This will take place at the Monticello Middle School. These programs were made possible with Arts & Cultural Heritage Funds from Minnesota's Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment. On our Events Calendar, you can find these and many more events funded by Legacy Amendment funds.
