ARTSEMERSON, HOWLROUND, AND ARTCHANGEUS PRESENT: CLAIMING YOUR SPACE

This event will be livestreamed on HowlRound TV at howlround.tv.
This Event is part of ArtChangeUS@, a series of curated performances/talks/workshops/interventions that ask: What does a changing United States look like on the ground? How are arts and culture being expressed by people and communities across the country?
HowlRound is a core partner of ArtChangeUS: Arts in a Changing America, a new five-year initiative that seeks to explore and understand the dramatic demographic transformation of the United States and its profound impact on arts and culture. ArtChangeUS will serve as an urgently needed catalyst that brings unheard, leadership voices in the arts to the forefront of social discourse, arts production, and community change.

"Some Other Race": Exploring the Diversity within the Latino story
Moderated by Noe Montez, Assistant Professor of Drama, Tufts University
Latinos are becoming a majority demographic in the US but yet still find themselves boxed into “some other race” on the US Census. How are Latinos updating our national narrative to be truly reflective of a changing America? How does the diversity inside of the Latino experience, whether Cuban, or Chicano, or South American, challenge and reflect the American cultural narrative? How do artists and communities create stories inside the breadth that is the Latino identity?
