Above and Beyond Borders

On March 14, 1:00 – 2:30pm, No Longer Empty, Arts & Democracy, and NOCD-NY hosted a webinar with artists and cultural organizers from Chicago, IL, Douglas, AZ and New York, NY who are actively working to envision a life of dignity for immigrants, detainees and prisoners, and individuals who have been violated and rendered invisible. You can find the recording of the webinar here!

The webinar features presentations on an art program co-created with prisoners at Cook County Jail and neighbors living in its vicinity, a collective using the arts to re-envision the US/MX border, and a sanctuary-based organization engaging cultural organizing to build solidarity and support for an immigrant population under threat of deportation in NYC.

Featured programs and presenters include: Maria Gaspar’s 96 Acres Project and Radioactive: Stories from Beyond the Wall (pictured, a site intervention at Cook County Department of Corrections, 2018. photo credit: Sarah J. Rhee); M Jenea Sanchez’s Border Arts Corridor; and members of the New Sanctuary Coalition’s art wing. Facilitated by Raquel de Anda, No Longer Empty.
