Undocu-Friendship: Artistas Triunfando A Través De La Comunidad

When: Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Where: Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center

Time: 5:15 – 7pm

*Open to the public*

Undocu-Friendship invites undocumented artist-activists who are building community and supporting each other’s work while navigating the current political climate. This event will highlight how each of them is working to reclaim the undocumented narrative by using a creative lens to build undocumented love, joy and resistance across various cultural communities.

We have the pleasure of welcoming Yosimar Reyes, DJ Sizzle Fantastic, and Julio Salgado to Brown University on Tuesday, November 6th.

Yosimar Reyes
“Yosimar Reyes is a nationally acclaimed poet, educator, performance artist and public speaker. Born in Guerreo, Mexico and raised in Eastside San Jose, Reyes explores the themes of migration and sexuality in his work. His first collection of poetry, ‘For Colored Boys Who Speak Softly…’ was self published after a collaboration with the legendary Carlos Santana. He was featured in the documentary, ‘2nd Verse: The Rebirth of Poetry.’”

Dj Sizzle Fantastic
“Dj Sizzle Fantastic is a migrant Chingona desde la Costa de Guerrero and raised in the streets of Boyle Heights, Califas. She is the resident Dj at Chingona Fire, one of the largest Latina open mics in the country and the curator of #Cumbiatón (Boyle Heights/Los Angeles), an emerging Cumbia and Afro-Latinx party.”

Julio Salgado
“Julio Salgado is the co-founder of DreamersAdrift.com and the project manager for CultureStrike. His status as an undocumented, queer artivist has fueled the contents of his visual art, which depict key individuals and moments of the DREAM Act and migrant rights movement. Undocumented students and allies across the country have used Salgado’s artwork to call attention to the youth-led movement.”


Undocu-Series Mission Statement

The Undocu-Series of the FLi Center aims to cultivate spaces for critical engagement that affirms the lived experiences of undocumented communities and disrupts the constant erasure of their humanity. The series, therefore, acknowledges the existence of multiple undocumented narratives by amplifying the voices and work of those who are often further marginalized within their own communities and excluded from the dominant discourse surrounding (im)migration. Through public lectures, performances, and workshops, the series provides opportunities for participants to reimagine dignity, joy, and liberation across various social movements.
