Arte de Resistencia/Art of Resistance
Wed., 3/29 from 7:00-9:00 p.m., East Commons, Christensen Center
Explore the topic of political resistance in Latinx and Spanish-speaking communities at this open mic event, where we will share poetry, music, visual arts and manifestos in English and/or Spanish. Bring your own work or something drawn from the inspired work of others that promotes peace and social justice. Come to share, come to listen. All are welcome!
We frame resistance as cultural expressions that unite us in our opposition to oppression and that create paths to freedom and promote justice for all.
Want to participate but not sure how? The Spanish and Cross-Cultural Studies faculty would be happy to help you choose a reading or explore resistance music in Spanish or English. Artwork can include posters, photos or paintings. Music can be of your own composition or created by others. Choose something that inspires you!
