Centro Nueva Creación promotes resilience in young people through educational enrichment and engagement in the Arts and Latino Cultures

We won't lie. Money is tight.

Philly nonprofits took a major hit during the most recent recession, and the effect on Centro was compounded by major staff and board leadership turnover. Combined with the decreasing funding opportunities for educational and art programs from government and foundational grants, well...you get the picture. Money is tight.

We would love your help.

We are hosting an emergency fundraiser so that Centro can offer their annual summer camp programming, a safe and creative space in which they can cultivate their love of photography, bomba dancing, drumming, acting, and writing poetry. The program is slated to run for six weeks, eight hours a day five days a week. Our fierce interim director and her devoted staff have come up with incredible ways to drastically cut costs while still offering educational and exciting activities for the kids. The Centro team is as resilient as they come, but in the end you still need at least two pennies to rub together.

Bonus: we think you'll enjoy yourself.

Our 20th Anniversary Exhibit & Benefit for Centro Summer Camp is on Thursday May 28th from 6 to 8 PM. The event will be held at PhilaMOCA on 531 N. 12th St. in the historic Finney & Son building that used to house a former showroom for tombstones and mausoleums.

We will be exhibiting our student's poetry and photography, and matted and framed prints will be available for purchase. We are also working with our students and staff to prepare a bomba performance, so come prepared to be wowed!

Why wait? Purchase your ticket now!

Tickets cost $25 each and 100% of the proceeds will be used to support the Centro Summer Camp. You can buy tickets by visiting Eventbrite, by clicking the orange button below, or by contacting adinalieberman.com.

Nos vemos! See you soon!
