Voces Summer Institute: Accepting Applications

January 25May 31

Voces is a FREE month-long summer writing institute for teens (ages 15-18) presented each summer by the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The goal of the program is to cultivate a community of talented young writers by nurturing their ability to write well.  Team-building, mentoring and community service are also important elements of the institute, encouraging inspiring and supportive relationships between peers, between teen writers and professional mentors, and between Voces teens and children and the elderly. The program is free and open to all teens with an outreach emphasis on at-risk youth and/or those who would not have the opportunity to participate in an intensive summer experience. Teens can apply for Voces here with a starting date of Monday, June 3, 2019.

The Voces program is generously supported by the City of Albuquerque.

National Poetry Month

April 1April 30

Join the NHCC’s History and Literary Arts program for a month of events including widely distributed pocket-size poems (in English and Spanish), poetry readings and book signings (including those associated with the Children’s Bilingual Book Festival), displays, and other events celebrating Latinx poets.  In 2019, for the 100th birthday of Walt Whitman, we will pair several Whitman poems with poems by Latinx writers, creating a “conversation” between poets who never met, but who talk to each other across time.

Please stay tuned in to this website and our social media for updates and event listings.
