The El Otro Lado training is an experiential two-day workshop based on the El Otro Lado curriculum guide that contains 17 bilingual experiences that are ideal for working with students, families, elders, schools or any community setting. Come join us in learning about the power of personal and collective story to transform our communities.

El Otro Lado engages people in the creative process by exploring our human connection to the land, our sense of home and belonging, and our sense of boundaries and cultural divides. Through the El Otro Lado creative experience, we find our stories have the power to touch others, build understanding, and restore the world and ourselves. By discovering and sharing personal and collective stories we reactivate our learning skills and build empathy and a deeper compassion for each other and the world around us.
