The 2023 experience to bring together cultura, connection, and manifestation for a unique community event

MILWAUKEE – (August 1, 2023) – The 2023 Poderosa Collective experience, Celebrating Our Magic, powered by HPGM, in collaboration with Alquimia Holistica, Carmen Diana, Clay Creations by Kayla, Latinas Connect Milwaukee, Mercadera, MiVoz, negozee, and VIBRANT VIDA WELLNESS, will take place on Sunday, Aug. 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park. 

The second annual experience brings together cultura, connection, and manifestation for a wellness community event like no other. Established in 2022, Poderosa Collective (PC) is a community born of passion and creative collaboration. The group, made up of Latinas in Wisconsin, strives to curate spaces where Latinas feel empowered, celebrated, and united. 

The movement uplifts the voices, contributions, and talents of Latinas from all backgrounds. Serving as a connector and convener for the Latina community in Greater Milwaukee, PC provides experiences and access to resources for and by Latina-owned businesses and Latina-led organizations to unleash their magic.

PC is on a mission to embrace and ignite the poderosa in ALL Latinas through the creation of supportive spaces for the local community to gather, heal, and thrive juntas. 

“We have worked together as a team to create an experience that will leave participants feeling seen, celebrated, welcomed, and included. The day's offerings affirm our innate and vast wisdom, talents, and the power of receiving a day of rest and inspiration,” said Mariyam Nayeri, fellow PC founder, 2023 PC planning committee member, and owner of VIBRANT VIDA WELLNESS.

From workshops like Plant & Movement Medicine, to Reclaiming Our Herbal Heritage, a panel discussion on Journeys of Self-Love & Nurturing the Soul, and over 10 one-of-a-kind vendors, there’s something for everyone to celebrate their magic. 

Media are invited to attend the event to conduct interviews, gather b-roll/photography, and take in all of the unique elements this event has to offer for the local Latina community.
