Wendy Angulo Productions is the proud recipient of the City Artist Corps Grants. With this grant, we will be able to host a new ensemble of our renowned event “Canvas of Words: An Art and Poetry Festival”. This year’s theme is “Your Pandemic Story: What We Witness & What We Carried” to showcase the vitality and resilience of immigrant students from NYC during the global pandemic. This project aims to document and narrate personal stories of immigrant students of NYC that adapted to a remote learning environment during the height of the pandemic. Using a multidimensional approach to bring forth their stories of achieving higher education, mental health, food insecurity, financial instability, and survival.
For this project, we have partnered with Village Academy School in Far Rockaway Queens to host a hybrid event with its students Friday, October 22, 2021, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
