The Center for Liberation, Anti-Racism, and Belonging is excited to co-sponsor a series of upcoming events hosted by the (Re)Writing Migration Stories Project lead by Prof. Laura Enriquez alongside a group of UCI students.

As people impacted by immigration policy, the team traveled to Mexico to begin healing and (re)building their connections to their country of origin. They have since sought to document the impact of this experience through art and continued collaboration with members of Otros Dreams en Acción (ODA), a community-based organization in Mexico that supports the returnee and deportee community.

In collaboration with the Dept. of Chicano/Latino Studies, C-LAB we will host two members of ODA, Madai Zamora and Baruck Racine, as artists-in-residence at UCI during Week 4 (April 22-26). On Tuesday Apr 23, 2024 from 1-5pm, they will host a presentation and zine making session entitled, Art to Imagine Liberation and Belonging.

In collaboration with UCI Libraries Student Display Program, the team will also be debuting their art exhibit, Healing and (Re)Building Connection Through Art, at Langson Library. A reception and conversation with contributors will take place Thursday Apr 25, 2024 from 4-7pm. The exhibit will remain in place through May 31, 2024.
