SANCTUARY CITY PROJECT
Sergio De La Torre and Chris Treggiari’s Sanctuary City Project focuses on telling stories of immigration in America. The SCP is a research project that uses community engagement and social practice methods to create a dialogue surrounding sanctuary cities and immigration issues. Engagement platforms used have included interactive installations, public projections, mobile food projects, and mobile print shops. Through the combination of research and community engaged platforms, SCP hopes to educate and engage with participants and institutions, creating inclusive spaces where deeper dialogue surrounding sanctuary cities an immigration policy can take place. On view at Vachon Gallery at Seattle University through February 21, 2020.
SUPPORT THE ART+ACTION COALITION'S
2020 CENSUS CAMPAIGN
Art+Action—a coalition for civic participation that spans art, creative, community, business, technology, philanthropy, activist, and government sectors—is developing an arts-based campaign that positions artists as catalysts to humanize the issues around the 2020 Census and galvanizes the public to participate. Headquartered and in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA)—and ignited by support from San Francisco’s Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA)—their initiative includes an arts-based public media campaign, city-wide art activations across disciplines (visual art, music, dance, film, spoken word, etc.) staged throughout San Francisco, from January through July 2020, and an open-source toolkit, for organizations and individuals to ignite their communities around the 2020 Census. Support their work to ensure our communities receive their fair share of resources and representation HERE.
