Culture is a story. Culture is made through storytelling. To change the culture is to tell a different story. Storytellers are historians. Values, morals, ethics, and politics are often passed down through the stories we are told and share with others. Our cultures and stories are inherently linked to the ancestral lands we come from, as well as the lands that we are on. When we are displaced and dispossessed, we are robbed of our rich histories and our abilities to recognize our connections to the land. This is the story of many who leave their native soil.
Crossing Gibraltar brought together ten dynamic creators together for a 15-week artistic exploration of relationships to land and Indigenous histories, the politics of translation and political speech, articulations of race and class, and storytelling through embodied cultural practices. Now, they invite us in.
Join us on Tuesday August 17th at 7:30pm for Crossing Gibraltar Presents -- a sharing of work by brilliant immigrant, refugee, and newcomer artists.
