Dare to Dream Video Pals at Red Hook Art Project

This month we kicked off the Dare to Dream video pal program with RHAP! Youth from Red Hook, Brooklyn were partnered with youth from Managua, Nicaragua. They made self portraits to share with their video pals, and asked questions on camera to learn more about their new friends from Central America. Videos of youth from Foundation Atelier Favela were shared with Brooklyn youth and it was exciting for them to connect with youth their age who share many characteristics with family and friends from their Brooklyn community. They were also happy to be using Spanish in a new way, as opposed to just speaking it at home with their family.
