In a group as small as the Portuguese-American community, it is difficult to advance arts and culture related to heritage. People are scattered throughout the US and efforts often go unnoticed.
For the past three years, Kale Soup for the Soul has been presenting free poetry readings and workshops to writers and students in Luso immigrant communities. From workshops at Rhode Island College (with local high school students from Shea) to readings at the Portuguese consulates inBoston and San Francisco, the 30 featured writers of Kale Soup for the Soul have been sharing stories about family, food, culture and more.
Without your support, the writers featured in the Kale Soup series would not be able to present these events. Please consider making a donation! We are seeking travel funds to Knoxville where we will give a reading and participate in a funded artist residency. No donation is too small! $5, $10. Thanks so very much! Click here for our Gofundme
