Voces de Latinidad: Community Session featuring Mónica Sanchez
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Join us in Salón Ortega for the fourth Community Listening Session in a series of 6 for our Voces de Latinidad documentary film project. Each gathering in this series will focus on a different cultural aspect of the question: “Who or what is Latinidad?” Voces de Latinidad aims to feature unique voices from our community culminating in a short documentary and digital archive celebrating the rich diversity of our lived experiences.
On July 11, we invite all people of Hispanic, Latina/o/e/x, Chicana/o/e/x, Indigenous, and New Mexican heritage from the communities of Barelas, Atrisco, the greater South Valley, and surrounding neighborhoods to come and share how you identify culturally and how this shapes your reality and lived experiences.
