|Nikkolas Smith, Lalo Alcaraz, and Anike Tourse talk about how they use|
their diverse art forms to speak truth to power
|Los Angeles, CA — Immi’Art, CHIRLA’s annual June arts and culture celebration, this year goes virtual to explore artivism and intersectionality, connecting art and progressive activism.|
The Facebook live event will feature a moderated conversation among three movement-oriented artists exploring art as a natural tool for resistance. Art is power!
Author/illustrator Nikkolas Smith, cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz, and filmmaker Anike Tourse will discuss how their involvement in the struggle for social justice–including immigrant rights, racial justice and due process–guides their artistic creation.
Angelica Salas, CHIRLA’s executive director, will introduce the event. Univision’s Yarel Ramos and Pamela Asobo Anchang, publisher of Immigrant Magazine will moderate the discussion.
We will also encourage online viewers to put on their activist hat and submit their best resistance art, in any format, for a chance to win prizes from Topo Chico. The best three pieces submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org win.
