Vision

In the 70’s and 80’s, Boricuas (Puerto Ricans) throughout NYC built small houses called casitas on neglected lots that became cultural spaces and havens. Inspired by this history, Casitas Wisdom honors the ancestral legacies of strength and resilience. We come together in the spirit of home to create spaces where people can be creative, tell stories, and share the knowledge we carry in our memories and bodies. This is political act of love and survival.
