An impressive lineup of artist-activists convene to explore the far-reaching social, political, and expressive powers of oral tradition. Here, wordsmiths share the stage with musicians to uncover how poetry, song, and storytelling can unleash personal truths, construct identity, and fundamentally alter historic narratives.

 

La Casita is curated by Melody Capote, Caribbean Cultural Center; Lillian Cho, consultant; C. Daniel Dawson, arts and media consultant; LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, writer, vocalist, sound artist and curator; Claudia Norman, Claudia Norman Management; Cady Gierke, Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian; and Rich Villar.
