What our participants have said about the Community Circulos program

“COMMUNITY ORIENTED, HEALING CIRCLE AND CREATIVE SPACE.” 

“a gentle way to get to know your self and others to reveal a community voice in drama and music, intergenerational!”

el taller me ayudo a mi a compartir mis emociones, a crear actividades con otras personas, y a entender la resistencia que tenemos el ser humano para salir de situaciones dificiles.”
