Creative Family Programs Presents: Second Saturdays at the Central Library

Every Second Saturday at 1:00 pm Young Audiences of Western New York will be offering free, family, interactive programming at the Buffalo downtown Central library. These programs will be located at the Ring of Knowledge at the base of the escalators on the main floor.
 
This Saturday teaching artist Aitina Fareed Cooke illustrates stories of endurance through hardships. Aitina serves as the Education Coordinator at Young Audiences of Western New York and has served as the Youth Services Site Coordinator at the CAO N.U.R.T.U.R.E. Academy After-School & Summer Program, Youth Development Professional at the Boys & Girls Club, Youth Skill Builder at the Heart Foundation and Photography teacher at CEPA Gallery, to name a few. She has created programs that have improved youth awareness, provided positive solutions for unproductive behaviors, developed community service events that increased parent involvement and strengthened communities.
 
Join us at this free creative family program as Aitina combines original poetry and hip hop to explain the power of words and how they can be used to heal, motivate, and inspire ourselves and others. This performance explores the effects of many social issues that plague the world, such as bullying, youth violence, homelessness, depression and how the power of words can inform, ignite and inspire change. Cooke also presents an artistic video that highlights historic leaders and poets and how their words affect others’ lives.
