Curious to learn more about what a caravan actually is and how to support the Caravan traveling north this winter?
Join the New Sanctuary Coalition, No Longer Empty and Art Space Sanctuary in this learning circle to help organize a Sanctuary Caravan to meet, support, and accompany the Central American exodus. The workshop will feature the voices of individuals who have previously traveled with or given refuge to migrant caravans, and provide ways to contribute to the Sanctuary Caravan. Together we will strengthen our understanding of how and why people chose to join caravans while learning how best to act in solidarity with refugees, either by joining a delegation of people at the border or challenging toxic narratives about who and what make up a caravan, and more.
This workshop is hosted by Art Space Sanctuary, No Longer Empty and The New Sanctuary Coalition. Organized by Abou Farman and Raquel de Anda.
Presenters include: Marco Castillo (Founder, IIPSOCULTA), Sara Gozalo and Catalina Antonio-Granados (New Sanctuary Coalition)
