La Diáspora Festival is an exploration of the intersections of Latin American communities in USA. Come and explore your own journey with us, and celebrate with the power of arts, culture, and community! We encourage you to dress the part!

This particular event is a One-day Cultural Festival showcasing different art disciplines with the same unifying question:

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE PART OF LA DIÁSPORA?

Join us this September 28, at the Impact Hub SF, where we will be showcasing the work of participating artists and others who wish to contribute and participate with La Diáspora Festival locally along with everyone who cannot join us in Mexico due to documentation-related, financial, or professional reasons, we want to hold space for everyone, and we need you there.

About:

In the last few years, we’ve developed an awareness that words like Hispanic, Latino, Latinx, etc. in the United States are nothing more than made-up labels that oversimplify our identities, our intersections, and our history as a continent.

A history that is inextricably linked to colonization and oppression, but also with resistance, ancient traditions and everything in between.

This is a social experiment that seeks to honor our shared journey through the exploration of all our intersections, which is why we seek to create an inclusive platform with artists who identify as Indigenous, Afro-Latinx, and LGBTQ, among many others, and we invite a diversity of voices to be present. YOURS INCLUDED.
