Above and Beyond Borders Webinar
Join Arts & Democracy, No Longer Empty, and NOCD-NY for a webinar with artists and cultural organizers from Chicago, IL, Douglas, AZ and New York, NY who are actively working to envision a life of dignity for immigrants, detainees and prisoners, individuals who have been violated and rendered invisible.
The webinar will feature presentations on an art program co-created with prisoners at Cook County Jail and neighbors living in its vicinity, a collective using the arts to re-envision the US/MX border, and a sanctuary-based organization engaging cultural organizing to build solidarity and support for an immigrant population under threat of deportation in NYC.
Featured programs and presenters include:
Maria Gaspar’s 96 Acres Project and
Radioactive: Stories from Beyond the Wall
M Jenea Sanchez’s Border Arts Corridor
Members of the New Sanctuary Coalition’s art wing
Facilitated by Raquel de Anda, No Longer Empty
You will have an opportunity to ask questions, share a project of your own, and connect with others from across the country.
