No one knew 13 years ago when we imagined Tia Chucha’s into existence that she would grow to be loved so much by so many. Like a child birthed into the world with hopes for a long and meaningful life, her creators wished for her the nurturing to make her strong, spirited, authentic and free. They knew the road would not be easy and set out to give her firm roots in community so she could weather any storms.
Over the years Tia Chucha’s has been blessed with many people who have cared for her, shared their talents, and opened their hearts to make possible an abundance of offerings in arts and culture, books and healing.These servings of empowerment and love, worth and growth, have taught her many things, so that in her space others now learn to tap into their strength, spirit, authenticity and freedom. This is how it should be. This is why Tia Chucha’s exists.
As Tia Chucha’s turns 13, a new generation of cultural, artistic, creative transformation warriors are stepping forward to help lead the way in the next phase of Tia Chucha’s development. We thank all of you for being part of the effort to make neighborhood arts valued and accessible in our communities. We invite you to celebrate with her, to continue supporting her, and to make the next 13 years even more amazing.
Come celebrate with us on March 22nd Tia Chucha’s 13th Anniversary.
Que viva Tia Chuchas! The best is yet to come!
