Indigenous People's March

IMG_0214.jpg

Carolina will be a speaker at the march and will share stories of indigenous people she has encountered while volunteering at a Detention Center in Texas. She will also amplify WHY we must come together and protect indigenous people from abuse. They, after all, have invaluable grit, resilience and are an endless source of inspiration.

Here is more information about the march :

On January 18, 2019, we are uniting the Indigenous peoples across the World to stand together to bring awareness to the injustices affecting Indigenous men, women and children. Indigenous people from North, Central and South America, Oceania, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean are a target of genocide. Currently, many Indigenous people are victims of voter suppression, divided families by walls and borders, an environmental holocaust, sex and human trafficking, and police/military brutality with little or no resources and awareness of this injustice. We Must Unite and Help!!

EDGY Conference

Keynote Speaker - "DACA, taboos and how to break barriers" 

Interactive art Installation will be part of the keynote

The EDGY Conference provides a “one-stop-shop” opportunity for youth-serving professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices, and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field.

The EDGY Conference, which is presented by Penny Lane Centers, strives to create a supportive environment for GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning) youth and families through initiatives, education, and enlightenment.

As Penny Lane’s work with GLBTQ youth and families expanded so did the organization’s knowledge of best practices for working with this population. In an effort to share their knowledge and experience with the social service community, Penny Lane held its first EDGY Conference in 2009. Penny Lane has remained committed to bringing to light the unique issues GLBTQ youth and families face.

Meghan Keane: Displacement, Desplazamiento (Essay participation)

Meghan Keane: Displacement, Desplazamiento (Essay participation)

Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002

On the occasion of this exhibition, Equity Gallery and MKS Press are co-publishing a monograph, Meghan Keane: Displacement, Desplazamiento. With essay contributions by critics Jill Conner (AS | Artists Studios, Whitehot Magazine) and Jonathan Goodman (Art in America, Brooklyn Rail), anthropologist Sebastián Ramírez Hernández (Princeton University), Carolina Rubio MacWright (immigration lawyer, political artist, Bogotá native) and site photographer Laura Moretti, the monograph situates Keane's paintings as powerfully humanizing gestures amidst the complex Colombian and Latin American socio-political landscape, in addition to positioning her firmly as a significant contributor to contemporary social practice discourse. Keane's paintings are indicative of a larger push by painters to re-value paint as an expressive and democratizing medium. Signed copies of the monograph will be available for sale during the opening reception and book launch on Thursday, March 10.
