POESIA PARA LA GENTE

Contents

Poesia Para La Gente (Poetry for the People) is a program that brings poetry to the people of the community in non-traditional spaces/places. Some of these places have been affected, in one way or another, by economical hardship or various forms of social stigmas. All locations are unique in providing a safe setting for artistic expression.

PPLG is curated and hosted by Jessica Ceballos
