Hosted by poet, musician, and curator Sandra García Rivera, this evening of performances and perspectives on the theme of sanctuary features spoken word, story, video, and song in defense and protection of immigrant rights. Through their work, the artists reflect on a variety of experiences and consider the urgency of storytelling, and the creation of “sanctuary” spaces for artists, immigrants, and families, in service of kinship, connection, and refuge.
Performers include Isabella “Isa” Borgeson, Jade Cho, Deuce Eclipse, Juliana Delgado Lopera, Vero Majano, Jeff Pierre, Sandra García Rivera (host), and Naima Shalhoub.
