Without Borders: Reimagining Cultural Identity

April 9, 2015

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

 

 

Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center

Join Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA), Students for the Advancement of Freedom, Equality and Human Rights (SAFEHR), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS) for the last Noche de Poetas (Poetry Night) of the Spring 2015 semester.

OPEN MIC!

Don’t miss out on the amazing talented poets as they share their own poetic words on this month’s theme “Tracing Our Blueprint: Defining Identity and Diaspora.”

Leading the night will be our featured poets Remi Kanazi and Luis Tubéns!

  • How do you define and embrace your cultural identity?
  • How has  diaspora shaped your sense of belonging in our society?

Remi Kanazi is a Palestinian-American poet and human rights activist based in New York City. His poetic verses of spoken word tackle mainstream political misrepresentations of critical issues by addressing topics such as human rights, Palestine, Iraq, and Islamophobia.

Luis Tubens is a Puerto Rican Chicago born poet. His narrative poems depict the gritty ambiance of the inner-cityscape while describing reflective personal experiences. He draws inspiration from the urban realities of the developing Latino diaspora and from his observations of proletarian struggles.

All audiences are welcome to join us at this event. Captioning, ASL Interpretation and Audio-Description services will be available upon request by contacting us.
