The Hispanic Culture Review – Literary and Photographic Contest, call for submissions for the 2022-23 edition is now open for entries!
We live in a changing world where our experiences unite us and where resilience helps us overcome obstacles, transform ourselves, and give value to various markers of our identity. We are who we are by being in touch with those experiences and connections with our people. These connections that, without realizing it, are created from abuelita's oven to conversations with strangers on the metro, help us forge permanent bonds in our lives. Wherever it is, we always look for that space where we can celebrate together our connections that tie us to the Hispanic experience.
As the Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano once said, "the best that the world has is in the many worlds that the world contains." Therefore, this year we invite you to reflect on the following questions: How do you or your community celebrate these connections? How do you value those experiences with those people who leave a mark on your life?
