Adult Programs

CCATE believes in empowering our community and bringing their drams to fruition through education. Each adult program has been initiated by parents in the community, who express their desire to learn, teach, or see a social change through the weekly programs.

English circle

The English circle meets with teachers and volunteers from Villanova University on Tuesdays from 7:15-8:15pm via the following Zoom link:

The teachers divide the participants between basic and intermediate.

Writing circle

The writing circle focuses on learning to narrate various genres of literature with the teaching of Mexican writer and stage director Silvia Ortega Vettoretti. The goal is that, as an immigrant and Latino community, we are authors of our own stories. The group meets on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 10:30 pm.

Las Artivistas 

Las Artivistas is a growing art collective that creates a space for women to express their creativity, reflect on their identities, and explore pressing social issues. As a community, we are working to discover and share our voices through multidisciplinary artistic expression. We suggest a pacifist revolution through art and activism, where intuition and love accompanied by solidarity, equity and justice are our main guides and goal. During its years of existence, the group’s work has been exhibited in educational, social and political spaces, such as the Annenberg Center for the Arts of the University of Pennsylvania, Organization of the American States, and the Philadelphia School District, among others. The group meets every other Thursday of the month.

Bicycle Group

From March to November the adults of CCATE, men and women, visit the bicipistas of the region in order to have a moment of coexistence, health, emotional health, appreciation and care for nature., It is a friendly, noncompetitive group that seeks to encourage the Norristown community to generate changes so that the presence of bicycle lanes is increased and the community lives more with the beauty of the Schuylkill River. The group meets on Sundays from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.

Photography Circle

This is a co-ed circle for fifth graders through adults. The photography circle teaches everything from photography basics to analog and digital photography. The circle seeks to sensitize the gaze so that we can portray our community, and at the same time give an account of our history, dreams, and projects.
