Arts Residencies for Newcomer Students

VOICES offers creative expression workshops for students newly arrived to the Roaring Fork Valley from Mexico and Central America. When students express who they are and feel seen and heard, they build confidence and connection.

Arts Workshops for Adult Immigrants

The arts give us the freedom to express big feelings and explore big issues while connecting with others and building personal confidence. VOICES offers creative expression workshops through partnerships with local organizations serving the valley’s vibrant immigrant population. We currently have workshops running with English in Action and Valley Settlement’s Lifelong Learning Program.
