In 2012 & 2013, this intergenerational series successfully showcased over 50+ QTPOC intergenerational artists and sold out The Mission Cultural Center to a crowd full of beautifully fierce jotatistas. This year in 2014, SQD launched it’s second annual paid 6 week creative writing workshop for youth in partnership with Youth Speaks led by Yosimar Reyes. All resources raised through this grassroots organized series go directly to paying artist stipends and developing independent arts education spaces for Queer/Questioning youth of color.

La Peña is located on Shattuck Avenue in Downtown Berkeley, 2 blocks away from the Ashby Bart Station. This venue is wheelchair accessible, will have a scent free seating area, and has no stairs upon entrance. For any requests or questions please feel fully welcome to email callequmbia@gmail.com
