About Somos La Voz

Somos La Voz is a free art education program for Chicano and Mexican-American identifying youth, taking place between February and August 2024. Through a grant from Far South/Border North, Via International is teaming up with Aztlan Libre to offer art and activism classes led by Chicano and Mexican-American teaching artists, and will result in youth collaborating with teaching artists to produce three public pop-up events showcasing the art of participating youth to the general public.

The underlying goal of this program is twofold: to connect the youth generation of Chicanos and Mexican-Americans with their unique cultural legacy, and to bring this legacy to the general public through free celebratory pop-up events. Art mediums on display may include visual art such as painting, graffiti art, and/or pinstriping or music and performance art such as Latin fusion music, Mexican folk music, and/or Aztec dance, among other possible mediums.

Are You a Youth Activist or Artist?

We are looking for youth identifying as Chicano and/or Mexican-American, aged 12-24 interested in learning to use art as a tool for activism and self expression! Workshops will be held in Logan Heights between February and August 2024. Participation is completely free.

Interested? Sign up and tell us your interests.
