Online Extra: Cierre Cultural: An End-of-Year Student Presentation

The Cierre Cultural is an end-of-year presentation where students get to proudly show off what skills they’ve learned. The cooking class makes food, art students display their creative work, the dance class performs, and music students sing and play their instruments.

In 2018, the presentation was held on the International Elimination of Violence Against Women Day. Because of the violent political environment in the country, the Center decided to emphasize that art is a means to heal, believing that art is a socio-educative, playful, and recreational tool that allows students to build their identity, augment their self-esteem, learn new forms of expression, and to feel safe.

The dance group students are excited to perform at
the end-of-year Cierre Cultural 2018.
