Our collective success as a community of artists and educators depends on how we assist and cultivate the representation of Latinx artists, in both art and educational environments. This panel of Latinx artists, educators and community leaders addresses how advocacy and fostering a love of the arts is informed by Latinx culture, history and experiences. The conversation explores how these relationships impact creative communities and voices.
Viewpoints and discussions of some of today’s leading voices in Latinx advocacy address cultural stewardship and how to bolster artistic excellence in the Latinx community in Colorado and beyond. Join in this timely conversation with artists and educators Rafael Fajardo, Richard Armendariz, and Lilian Lara.
This panel is moderated by Alex Sanchez, the founder and President and CEO of Voces Unidas de las Montañas, the first Latino-created and Latino-led advocacy organization in the central mountain region.
