Dichos Workshop - Nashville

VFOA held a workshop at the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville, TN. Inspired by Dichos: Words to Live, Love, and Laugh by in Latin America, this program explored the history, wisdom, and wit embedded in the speech of women of age. Focusing on the Panama Canal Zone, Ifeoma Nwankwo contextualized several dichos and, using songs, stories, and poems, led an interactive activity that gave audience members a chance to learn innovative approaches to recovering, listening to, and using the voices of women of all races locally in Nashville.
