UndocQT ARTivism: Creating Beyond Borders

Thursday, March 1, 2018

7:00pm – 8:30pm

Lower Salomon Rm 001, Salomon Center

The LGBTQ and FLi Centers seek to engage art as a strategy of resistance and disruption of dominant narratives that seek to silence radical voices within the immigrant rights movement. We invited queer and trans artists from various cultural backgrounds to explore questions of identity, survival, and the racialization of undocumented communities in mainstream narratives. Who is being erased from the discourse surrounding race, immigration, and documentation? What modalities of resistance are being de-legitimized? What is the queer and trans experience in the midst of it all? We strive for this event to be a platform to grapple with these questions and allot space for queer and trans artists activists to share their experience in this work.

Featured Panelists Include: 
- Rommy Torrico
- Alan Pelaez Lopez
- Ola Osaza
- Stephanie “Soultree” Anne Ladrera Camba
