¿Dónde puedo ir? Searching for Home
Join us for an evening of storytelling weaving narratives of displacement with original music made by and for Bushwick’s Latinx community.
¿Dónde puedo ir? Searching for Home is a collaborative musical project created around recorded oral histories that capture the immediacy of displacement facing local Latinx residents in Bushwick due to housing insecurity, political turmoil, and socio-economic instability that’s been further exacerbated by the ensuing public health crisis.
This event is sponsored, in part, by the Artivism: The Power of Art for Social Transformation 2021 Sing for Hope Artivist Award and the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council.
Cynthia Tobar is an artist, activist-scholar, archivist, and oral historian who is passionate about creating interactive, participatory stories documenting social change.
This project will culminate in an evening of original music and storytelling that incorporates the experiences of Latinx residents in this hyperlocal yet universal documentary project that showcases Bushwick’s strengths: its diversity and its soul. We want to amplify stories of how we find our sources of strength to not only survive but thrive.
