The CASA program will officially launch on May 28th when the Academy Of Urban Planning (formally Bushwick High School) will host a fundraiser to raise money towards developing student projects and travel expenses to Chicago’s Young Planners Network Conference in June 2010. Their goal is to take their workshop “debunking and deconstructing stereotype/violence prevention workshops” to other schools in different states.
About Capicu Cultural Showcase
Inspired by the founders of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, El Museo Del Barrio and other grassroots movements, the duo set out to create events that would expose the Brooklyn community to talent that already existed in the neighborhood and also to the vast array of talent in the Tri-State area that Brooklyn doesn't usually get to see within its borders.
On March 23rd, 2007 the Capicu Cultural Showcase was born. Showcasing spoken word, comedy, live music visual art and community. The first event confirmed what these two visionaries believed to be true – Brooklyn needed an insitution of its own.
The institution of Capicu today is comprised of carefully curated expos of cultural expression that transcends race and ethnicity. In addition to the cultural showcase, college tours and philanthropic events, Capicu has also ventured into online radio, recently moving their 2 year-old show on Blog Talk Radio to Urban Latino Radio to reach a larger and more relevant global audience.
