Art Talk | 12pm - 1pm

This is a special opportunity to hear artist and MSJC associate faculty member Dulce Soledad Ibarra speak about her artwork and career as an artist.  Ibarra is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, educator, and curator with investments in community and identity-emphasized arts and opportunity. As a practicing artist, Ibarra discusses issues of generational guilt, identity, class, labor, displacement, and injustice in sculptures, videos, installations, performances, and participatory work. 


Game Night: Loteria | 5pm - 6:30pm

Lotería is a traditional game of chance, similar to bingo, using cards with images. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored. Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 × 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number. Players choose what tabla they want to play with, from a variety of previously created tablas. Each one presents a different selection of images.


October 21
Art Experience: Unapologetic Resilience & Self-Care | 11am - 12pm

*Paint canvases and supplies will be available for pick-up throughout the week at each event and in our offices at San Jacinto - Bldg 1100, Rm 1113 and Menifee - Bldg 250.

Week of Action Kick-Off Event | 4:30-6pm

Join us as we hear from keynote speaker Julio Salgado. Featuring music by Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles, the world's first LGBTQ+ mariachi!

Julio Salgado is the co-founder of DreamersAdrift and the Migrant Storytelling Manager for The Center for Cultural Power. His status as an undocumented, queer artivist has fueled the contents of his visual art, which depict key individuals and moments of the DREAM Act and the migrant rights movement. Undocumented students, organizers and allies across the country have used Salgado’s artwork to call attention to the migrant rights movement.

Salgado is the co-creator of The Disruptors Fellowship, an inaugural fellowship for emerging television writers of color who identify as trans/and or non-binary, disabled, undocumented and/or formerly undocumented immigrants. His work has been displayed at the Oakland Museum, SFMOMA and Smithsonian.
