NIIC Conference: Shifting Cultures on Immigration, Identity, and Race

How are artists and cultural workers shifting our national culture and perceptions towards immigrants and integration? As part of the 2015 National Immigrant Integration Conference, AAWW Executive Director Ken Chen joins Favianna Rodriguez (CultureStrike), Tia Oso (Black Alliance for Just Immigration; Black Lives Matter), Kat Lazo (Race Forward), and filmmaker Luis Argueta (The Postville Raid) on a panel featuring artists and cultural workers who have played a key role in advancing the recognition of immigrant cultures and expressions in the country, and shaping perceptions about immigrants, race and identity. How do we incorporate an intersectional cultural strategy as a key part of all work in the immigrant rights movement? What are some case studies/ways in which artists have use arts/culture to change the conversation on immigration? This panel will provide a toolbox of cultural strategies as a takeaway. Conference registration starts at $160 and can be accessed here.
