A process of storytelling that embodies the work of teachers, teacher candidates, parents, and students in a representation of their lives through artifacts, histories, and experiences about family stories, or their Latinx individualities. The art project exemplifies authentic stories depicted in small maletas (suitcases) and shrines that foster critical reflection of struggles and successes to maintain the language, culture, and integrity of the family. A personal shrine is like a memory in a box. Participants will make their own shrines using their own personal stories. *Please bring copies of photos and items to put on your shrine- such as, buttons, jewelry pieces.

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!” Jack Kerouac , poet (1922 – 1969)
Live with mystery. Joseph Jeswald, painter ( 1927-2009)
In every encounter with Pamela, I have found her to be highly competent, professional, positive, collaborative, and dedicated to any project she leads. She is skilled at listening carefully and captures the essence, and stories of individuals who have made the greatest sacrifices to keep their families safe and united as they migrant out of necessity to feed, clothe, and secure shelther. These families epitomize the resilence of the human spirit and make important, and often unrecognized contributions to their communities, state and nation. Pamela is consistent in her attention to organize, oversee and proactively facilitate the critical details to complete each project with judicious attention to respect and honor the subjects she highlights.
