2005 Art and Change Grant – $2,000

Carmen will teach crochet workshops in her Norris Square neighborhood, helping low-income residents learn a traditional art form free of charge. Her workshops, taught in Spanish, will teach these skills to other senior citizens in Grupo Motivo, as well as young people from her neighborhood in efforts to connect them to their Puerto Rican heritage. These classes will help carry on the tradition of crochet in her community.
