Voces de Latinidad: Joanna Keane Lopez
3:00 – 5:00 pm
Join us at the Hubbell House in the South Valley for the third Community Listening Session in a series of 6 for our Voces de Latinidad documentary film project, featuring Joanna Keane Lopez. 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 June 24, 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.
Free Community Event. Please register using the link below.
Speaker: Joanna Keane Lopez is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is informed through adobe, paper, clay, wood, textiles and song. She inherited the practice of working with adobe, a mixture of mud and straw, from her family who constructed, maintained, and lived in earthen homes. She is also informed by the teachings of enjarradoras and adoberas, women who specialize in the traditional craft of earthen architecture who continue the practice today in the complex cultural landscape of New Mexico.
*Note: Community Sessions will be filmed and some individuals may be selected for interviews. The start time for this event has been updated to 3:00 pm.
The Voces de Latinidad project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Democracy Demands Wisdom.
