What makes us the right fit?
My mission as an artist, organizer, and educator here in Lancaster City is to create what I needed as a kid so another generation doesn’t feel like anywhere else is better than here. Part of this, is building a space where Latinx folks are able to be seen, celebrate themselves and let their roots grow a bit deeper. My graduate research (and subsequent scholarship) examines Creative Placekeeping of the Latinx community here in Lancaster City. I know intimately through my volunteerism, leadership positions, and work in the community that the lack of a physical space has forced the diaspora to feel like they don’t fully belong here. If I can do anything at all to help my community feel a sense of belonging and empowerment, I am fulfilled.
