"Migrant and Indigenous Sanctuaries" Event at APA Institute at NYU

"Migrant and Indigenous Sanctuaries" Event at APA Institute at NYU

Student Jess X. Snow will be hosting "Migrant & Indigenous Sanctuaries," a program she curated for the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, on April 29 from 6 PM to 8 PM. The evening will feature a series of short films from 1st Year Students Razelle Benally and Shane McSauby; along with films by Génesis Mancheren Abaj and Kenia R. Guillen; music by Laura Ortman and a panel that Jess will moderate. The event serves as one of the final events in her installation We Imagine Sanctuary.

Drawing inspiration from the migratory journeys of the natural world and the power of collective imagination, We Imagine Sanctuary is a mural and sound installation, and space in which one can reflect, organize, and envision a future free of borders, family separation, and forced migration. This program will honor Indigenous and migrant visions of sanctuary and decolonization from both sides of the border.
