La Galeria: Open Mic

I'm interrupting my regular writing to bring you this:

El tiempo ha llegado para contar nuestras historias!
The time to tell our stories is here!

We officially invite you to:
*La Galeria: An Open Mic*
A safe space where you will tell and hear stories of struggle, resistance, color, and regrets from Quisqueyan@s living in the Diaspora. 

Some of our featured artists will be: 
Frank Antonio López from The Peace Poets https://www.facebook.com/ThePeacePoets
Ynanna Djehuty
Stanley Rosario from Los Leones NYC https://www.facebook.com/LosLeonesnyc
Ama http://www.radicallatina.com/

And more to come...

The Dominican Republic is the place that brings you merengue, mangú and a culture that strives on community.

And yet it is also a place that harbors anti-haitianismo, machismo, corrupción, and a story of how these beliefs came to be. We hope that this open mic will be a place to reflect on some those issues as well as celebrate our ancestors who originally named the place Quisqueya.

We will also be announcing a new project that is under construction:

**La Galeria Magazine**

An online venue to read about all things related to Quisqueya's diaspora. Through this event, you will be able to network with the team, tell us about what topics you would like to read, and have a necessary conversation on resistance and community building here in New York.

Join us as we begin nuestra conversación!
