Hacemos La Ciudad
With Las Imaginistas. Hacemos La Ciudad (We Make the City) in Brownsville, Texas; a comprehensive civic reimagining initiative in partnership with professors from University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Center for Mexican American Studies. A yearlong schedule of movement workshops, performances, art installations, and charrettes will consider the mind, heart, hands, and body of Brownsville. The aim of these events will be to examine and question how colonial ideology has informed the existing architecture and infrastructure of the city, and also to offer an opportunity for local residents to imagine a decolonized civic landscape and infrastructure. The project culminates in a Plan de Arte Cívica del Pueblo Entero (Civic Art Plan of the People).
Supported as part of a fellowship with A Blade of Grass. Learn more at https://www.lasimaginistas.com/hacemoslaciudad. (2017-2019)
