Thu August 11th Open 12—6 PM
In April 2021, we announced the YBCA 10, a cohort of artists the organization would work with in deep relationships over the course of a year, to allow their creative practice to lead us towards a more equitable future.
Over the past nine months, the artists that make up the 10—dancers, photographers, wordsmiths, architects, technologists, farmers, and multidisciplinary practitioners—have been working with each other and in community to imagine and design creative prototypes that impact community health and well-being, by addressing racial justice and climate equity.
While these issues are undeniably urgent, creative practice also needs time. This is an entirely new way of working for us as an organization *and* for these powerful artists, all happening at a time when deep care is required more than ever. After months of listening, movement workshops, and community conversations, it is now time to open up their process to you—our community.
In this episode, we continue our extended conversations with YBCA 10 artist Leticia Hernández-Linares. Joining her in this intimate dialogue is YCBA Creative Cohort Artist Caleb Duarte. Listen to hear the group flesh out conceptual ideas around art, healing through storytelling, memory work, and being historians of our own history through dialogue.
