Calles y Suenos
The Butterfly Poetry Project is a venue for women by women… Each of the artists featured is a Butterfly that took flight into the universe through her art. Through the performances and presentations each of the Butterflies that grace us with her performance will touch another women so she too can take flight!
The Butterfly Effect Project envisions a world in which women are valued as human beings growing, working, and living in a state of neutrality and peace. Through intentional practices of self-discovery, introspection and communal growth, the Butterfly Effect Poetry Project showcases women poets, especially women of color and LBGT women. This project exists to provide a catalyst for interaction, dialogue and growth for Chicago women. It will serve as a social justice community forum that educates and empowers women on issues by promoting confidence, self-respect and self-worth.
Callles y Suenos in Pilsen is the venue that will provide an opportunity for women to have a space that honors women's cultural/sexual identities and their stories, build community collaborations, and provide an inclusive space for all women to reflect on our multiple identities through the various artistic modalitie including dance spoken word, and music.
