PROJECTS

VOICES  DE LA CALLE

Artistic Director Eliza Butler created this innovative program. You can learn more about it at facebook.com/voicesdelacalle or at youtube.com/voicesdelacalle

Artists join together through the use of social media to form a thought collective surrounding their artistic expression and the themes of identity and social justice. This is a collaborative project to inspire others to consider who we are becoming as a global community. Simultaneously, issues of power and representation are questioned throughout the process of sharing our Voices.
