Stories from the Park' N Lots

Updated: Apr 22


Written by poet and performer Quique Avilés, and directed by GALA's Associate Producing Director Abel López, join us for the Staged Reading of a new work created from stories from members of our diverse community, collected over two years through GALA's initiative Stories From The Park' N Lots under Project Director Antonio Montes.


For the past two years, GALA has held storytelling circles in which youth, seniors, business owners, artists, and residents share the meaning of community, what has changed, and where we are going. A community program to spur positive changes and bring people together for collaborative work. Story circles occur regularly and are announced on GALA's social media platforms.


Escrita por el poeta y artista Quique Avilés, y dirigida por el Productor Asociado de GALA, Abel López, acompáñanos en la lectura actuada de un nuevo trabajo creado a partir de las historias de miembros de la comunidad, recolectadas durante dos años mediante la iniciativa de GALA Stories From The Park' N Lots bajo la guía del Director de Proyecto Antonio Montes.


Los últimos dos años, GALA ha llevado a cabo reuniones en círculos para que las personas de la comunidad, incluidos jóvenos, adultos mayores, dueños de negocios y artistas, compartan sus percepciones sobre lo que ha cambiado y hacia dónde va la comunidad. Es un programa comunitario para fomentar el cambio posutivo y unir a la gente para trabajar conjuntamente. Estas reuniones ocurren con regularidad y son anunciadas en las redes sociales de GALA.


This project is made possible with generous support from the Kresge Foundation. In partnership with Washington Parks & People, the Latin American Youth Center, District Bridges, Local Initiative Support Corporation, the Latino Economic Development Center, and the Washington Theatre Lab School of Dramatic Arts.
