Learning Lab for Youth: The Denver Center for Crime Victims

Harrison Candelaria Fletcher, an essayist, journalist and mixed-media artist, grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His mother, an artist, collector and dreamer, spent weekends exploring the back roads and second-hand shops of New Mexico seeking treasures others had overlooked. It is this kind of alchemy he will bring to PlatteForum. During his residency he will create, along with high school youth, a series of “literary collages.” These will include poems, vignettes and short stories that will be assembled into objects and images that become three-dimensional portraits of the participants.
