INTERSECTIONAL LATINX MUSIC
Nosotros is a festival dedicated to uniting Latinxs people of all backgrounds to come together in the name of art, expression and protest.
We are meeting each other at the intersections of race, gender, nationality and all other identities that are often erased from the popular representations of Latinx people. Our mission is to create an alternative to hopelessness in the face of a xenophobic, racist, homophobic and sexist political climate. We wish to provide a platform for social justice workers and artists alike -- an opportunity to share their work with a proactive audience. Creating a response to these turbulent times is reclaiming our narrative and continuing the work of our ancestors.
Our event hopes to unify Latinx people and to provide a space to share our work, our stories and to contribute to the greater cause of changing our society. We hope our movement will attract Latinx visionaries, who will leave rejuvenated and inspired with new knowledge of ways to counteract the hatred we face. Nosotros is dedicated to empowering our youth and standing in solidarity with all oppressed people who are fighting for a better world.
The first annual festival was held at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on November 4, 2016. More details about 2017 festival to be announced.
