In 2017, RILA embarked in a project that would bring to life its collection of Latino stories, based on the oral histories of Rhode Island Latinos collected by Marta V. Martínez, oral historian and RILA's Executive Director. A series of workshops were offered from April to August 2017, which set the stage for this next phase in the project.

Beginning in 2019,
Nuestras Raíces: Latino Histories of Rhode Island will become a series of monologues led by RILA teaching artist, Marcel Mascaró. He has already directed the first in a series of Nuestras Raíces monologues, the first which is scheduled for debut in February 2019. Take a look at a preview of this production below.

Marcel is a 2018 graduate of the Brown-Trinity MFA Program and from February to March will be leading six workshops on how to write and perform a monologue. The fee to attend each workshop is $25 or $100 if you sign up in advance for the entire series. No refunds after the second class.
Registration opens in January 2019.
