Expressing Our Rights
Comvida, another local youth oriented organization, held an event October 7th, 8th, and 9th at which youth in El Progreso expressed their rights. The event targeted local youth and brought various institutions to the stage where they expressed their rights. Day one of the event was composed of a youth art workshop. Day two, was comprised of youth dances ranging from break-dance to danza folklorica. The final day culminated in an exposition of student theater. Throughout each day of events youth and local social activists reaffirmed the rights that everychild has.
Bringing together hundreds of high schoolers and middle schoolers from as far away as two hours, the event was a great opportunity for students of diverse backgrounds to share in expressive and culture activities that encourage their creative and individual growth.
OYE Ritmo choreographed a dance and represented our youth. You can see their dance above.
