Enough is Enough! The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) is tired of the violent attacks and blatant disrespect committed by Trump and his administration to our Black, Brown, Indigenous, Womxn, LGBTQ communities. They call on our artists, policymakers, and CCCADI family to take a stand and voice your thoughts, emotions, and visions for the future at our East Harlem Cultural Siesta: A Communal Artistic Response to Trump.
The event features an interactive community pop-up graffiti mural, a people’s wall, African drumming, empowering music, and a host of other politically inspired art activities. This event will be led by artist, curator, and museum educator, Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez.
Bring your voice, art, poetry, instruments, pots, and pans!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate as an artist and facilitate a pop-up art activity.
