Migration Across Frontlines and Borderlines
"Migration" is a collaborative project between CantoMundo—a national organization that cultivates a community of Latinx poets through workshops, symposia, and public readings—and Frontline Paper, our connective veterans art project.
Through a series of poetry, papermaking, and printmaking workshops for veteran artists and Latinx poets, Migration will consist of 5 weekend workshops over the course of several months to bring together two communities to talk and make art about their experiences and commonalities around the concept of migration. A final public exhibition and symposia will take place to present the project to the public and encourage wider dialogue around migration.
The project will take place in our Branchburg, NJ studios, at Columbia University, and across international borders through family and friend participation in countries such as: Mexico, Syria, parts of Latin America, Iraq, Russia, and Romania. Additional countries may be added depending on the Latinx and veteran artists registered for the workshops.
Registration will open once we have secured funding for the project.
