This event was recorded on December 8, 2022 at The Arts Campus at Willits (TACAW) presented by English in Action, in partnership with Aspen Public Radio.

Local nonprofit organization English In Action brings its signature storytelling experience, Immigrant Voices, to TACAW. This event provides a unique opportunity for six immigrant community members, including English In Action students, to raise their voices and share a part of their lives with the audience.

This year, English In Action welcomed six storytellers hailing from four different origin countries; Lissette Escolero and Ingrid Celeste Zuniga from El Salvador, Isabel Guerrero and Belen Alcaraz Madrigal from Mexico, Giovanna Kennedy from Peru, and Ketut Siladarmawan from Bali.

The speakers were coached by Alya Howe of Writ Large. Howe established Writ Large in the Roaring Fork Valley as a dynamic way to bring true, unscripted stories to live audiences.

Aspen Public Radio will broadcast this program at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 18, 2022. Or, you can listen to the event in its entirety by clicking the link above.
