canto y poesÍa

Gracias al apoyo del grupo de consultantes Capacitadoras en Acción, Arte Sana puede ofrecer el fruto de nuestro primer ensayo del ciber activismo en conmemoración del 25 de noviembre. Con esta actualización estrenamos nuestra nueva sección CANTO Y POESÍA y compartimos información, arte, poesía, y letra de canciones por y sobre mujeres latinas que reflejan la violencia, la injusticia, la valenta, y la fuerza. Mil gracias a las siguientes consultantes por sus valioso aportes al tema especial de esta actualización de la página web.

Mientras que la vergüenza y el miedo nos pueden mantener encarceladas y aisladas; el canto y la poesía nos pueden liberar a gritar, llorar, reclamar y sanar usando nuestra propia voz y nuestro propio lenguaje.
