In this Political“Huipil” (a traditional blouse in indigenous southern Mexico) we will be collectively creating artistic plastic miniature huipiles. It is focused on creating a community to share our migrations stories, frustrations, and concerns during the current political climate we are facing. The intent is to open up conversations of difficult topics such as migration, racism and gender inequality. All genders, races, ethnicities, religions, ages, and sexualities welcome. No art background needed, only open hearts and minds. Refreshments and materials will be provided.
