Immerse Yourself in a New Culture

Cafecito Amigo, multicultural program

Cafecito Amigo September 10 – Celebrating ART!

The next Cafecito Amigo program with Douglas County Libraries will be held on September 10 at the Parker library from 6:30-8:30 PM. Cafecito Amigo, which translates to “Friendly Coffee,” aims to bring together our community’s native English Speakers and English Language Learners who are interested in learning together and sharing our various cultures. Participants are encouraged to come to the event prepared to both listen to and/or share stories, food, knowledge, art and enjoy friendly conversation.

Participants of all backgrounds are encouraged to share their artistic talent, or to tell a story that has art as part of its theme, or talk about artistic styles or traditions in one’s native country (including the USA). Maybe you want to share your telling of the story of the Virgin of Guadeloupe! Or perhaps you are a painter or sculptor and would like to show off your talent and talk about your inspiration! Perhaps you want to show the group pieces or pictures of traditional art or crafts from your cultural heritage. Quilters are welcome, too!

Community members from all backgrounds who wish to present at this program are encouraged to contact Tiffany Curtin or register as a performer on Volunteer Connect by September 1. Presentations may be from 2-20 minutes.

Participants who can not even draw stick figures are welcome to appreciate and learn about the art and artists from various backgrounds in our community and meet new and wonderful people!

And, of course, a little coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be available to participants. Participants are also welcome to bring a dish to share if they wish.

The last Cafecito Amigo Program of 2015 will be held on December 10 at the Philip S. Miller Branch in Castle Rock.

All Cafecito Amigo programs meet from 6:30-8:30 PM.

The concept of the Cafecito Amigo program aligns with the Core Values of Douglas County Libraries. At Douglas County Libraries we aim to create meaningful connections that engage the community and foster growth and trust as we explore and discover together.

The program is the creation of Spanish teacher Marta Pardo and Douglas County Libraries' Adult Literacy Specialist, Tiffany Curtin. Questions may be directed to Tiffany Curtin at: 303-688-7646 or tcurtin@dclibraries.org.
