We Tell Ourselves Stories, curated by Catherine Nueva España

"Reading helps us to find our place in the world and to recognize the power of our own voice. Wherever we read or are read to—in our room, in the library, on the bus, in the classroom, in the park—we can be both alone in our thoughts and engaging with the world. That is the power of story."

—Curated by ArtsWA Board Member Catherine Nueva España who is an avid reader and a big supporter of public libraries. Based in Seattle, she was most recently Executive Director of Velocity Dance Center and currently serves as an ARTS at King Street Station Advisor and a board member at Khambatta Dance Company.
