A Nation In Exile is a series of events that brings together people, artists, and organizations from all walks of life to continue the process of healing our state of collective, relational and spiritual (mental) exile.
Returning to the Root:
Sitting at the intersection of Indigenous, African and European relations, Latine culture begins our journey toward examination, reclamation and revival. Featuring performances by Amado Espinoza, Jose Faus, Marisa Grady, Robert Bordeaux, and Pedro X. Molina, Returning to the Root will be showcasing Hispanic and Indigenous artists who turn an unflinching eye toward our collective and individual condition of exile or bask in the light of reclaiming home. This one day event will be in partnership with AIRR. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to AIRR, who will also be able to promote and invite the community into their work. Returning to the Root will take place at 21c Museum Hotel.
