XingonX: A Cultural Festival
Hairpin Arts Center 2810 N Milwaukee Ave
Almost 20,000 Latinx/o/as have been displaced from the gentrifying Logan Square. #BrownInChicago is a youth-led project and will present stories, photo gallery, poetry, film, and family trees of their lives growing up in the gentrifying Logan Square-- as a celebration of their existence and contribution to this community. Erasing brown stories is a form of violence.
Join us to connect, unbury and celebrate our history in this community and its connection to our organizing at the Logan Square Neighborhood Association.
We are collaborating with the Logan Square Arts and Craft Bazzar, a collective of fierce Latinx/a women artesanas from the Logan Square and Chicagoland communities. Artists will include:
•Quetzal Artesanias Hand Craft
•Madre de Perla Designs
• Ollin Papalotl
• Sandra Cecilia
• Xica Aguilar
• Eva Gonzalez
• Iris Figueroa
• Olga Aguilar
• Susana Banuelos
• Montserrat Morán Art
• Rosa Hulotlalcoatl Gaytan
• Mosaicos Arte Chicago
• Coni Abejitta
and many more!
•The craft market opens at 1pm! Family friendly! Free Admission!
•Program starts at 2pm with Mexica Dancers honoring the 4 cardinal directions.
•Every hour throughout the day young Xingonxs will gather attendees for bilingual discussions around their resistencia through arte.

HybridSalon is an bi-yearly, interdisciplinary evening of new performance work made in collaboration. Genesis provides Chicago based artists with opportunities to connect and network across disciplines, to explore risk and experimentation in their own artistic practices, and to investigate working in new models of collaboration. #HybridSalonChi
Genesis is an artistic partnership between Amanda Dunne Acevedo and Lindsey Barlag Thornton. Our work is often site-specific, collaborative, and experiential. We value experimentation and risk-taking in our practice, with a performance model that intentionally considers our audience and space.
