We will kick off our Saber Es Poder series with Dr. Alicia del Campo, Professor of Spanish at California State University, Long Beach. Dr. Del Campo 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.
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.
