Saber es Poder (Knowledge is Power): Latinx Leadership & Advocacy is a 3-part series focusing on Latinx leadership, activism, and self-exploration as a way to create social change. Participants will have the opportunity to explore both historical and contemporary activism through art within the Latinx community. A wide variety of speakers will share their stories and work to spark inspiration that participants can carry into their own personal lives and leadership!
Each episode will feature different speakers. We highly encourage participants to attend all 3 episodes, but attendance at all 3 is not required.
EPISODE 1: Taking Down a Dictatorship One Thread At a Time: Chilean Women’s Resistance & Artivism
Tuesday, May 4th from 4:00-5:30 pm
Dr. Alicia del Campo, Professor of Spanish at California State University, Long Beach, will lead us in learning about the lived experiences of Chilean citizens throughout the brutal seventeen year Pinochet regime and how the cultural art of arpillera-making and Chilean women’s activism helped document their individual and collective stories of resistance, expose the cruelty of the government and ultimately topple a dictatorship.
EPISODE 2: Archiving Stories of Existence & Resistance: Latinx Artivism Panel
Join us for a conversation with musician and activist Taina Asili, poet and social entrepreneur Kim Guerra, and visual artist and illustrator Gabriela Alemán as they showcase their artwork, share how their art connects to their leadership, identity, and activism, and answer questions from the audience.
