¿Qué Pasa, USA? hosts a monthly meet-up for self-identifying POCs working in creative fields to address critical issues at the intersection of art and social change, share resources, support one another, and grow community together.

Survival Beats: Experimental Narratives within Music and Poetry
Led by Pat Alexander, Jose Faus, Carlos Ortiz-Gallo
Facilitated by Lynnette Miranda
There are narratives and histories embedded in music, poetry, and visual art that create a space for storytelling that is not simply about expression, but about resilience and survival. Join us for an open format conversation and record listening around the collective, yet unseen underground spaces for marginalized voices established through the experimental lineage of sound, word, and image.

Roundtable Discussion: Visibility / Invisibility: Issues Around Representation

la Esquina (1000 W 25th Street)
The culturally-specific sitcom uses lightheartedness and humor to subvert the contentious issues of its time, but it can also reinforce the same assumptions and stereotypes it’s pushing against. Participate in a dialogue about the representation of “The Other” in media and popular culture. We will sample clips from culturally-specific sitcoms of the 1960s thru today and considering the importance of representation as well as its problematics.
