BLK+BRWN+BRUJX promotes Black, Brown, and Indigenous solidarity and liberation by creating radical community spaces and alternative economies.
All people are invited to our second cultural market, Metztli Magik! Metztli means moon in the Nahuatl language, an Indigenous language of these continental lands spoken throughout many communities yet today! In honoring this word, we honor Grandmother Moon and all her medicines and offerings as well as honoring our Indigenous Ancestors who have existed on this continental land mass for generations. ♥
Metztli Magik will feature:
– twenty-three BLK+BRWN+BRUJX makers offering their art & medicines
– delicious vegan food available for purchase
– moon medicine workshop
– children’s learning and play area
Stay tuned to the event page wall for features on our brujxs and other updates!
P.S. All people will be asked to remove their shoes before entering the movement room where our market will be thriving, so please come with the fresh feet!
My most recent work, my illustrations of ceremony and my life, is inspired by my Mexican-Mexica and Polish Ancestry, specifically Tejana artist, Carmen Lomos Garza and Polish artist, Berenika Kowalska Obrzedy. Both are artist who work in illustrations and cut paper, in Polish it is Wycinanki(Wee-shi-naki) and in Español Papel Picado.
My work is a reflection of my family and friends, ceremony and celebration. It reminds me of times I felt love and community. I feel this in the work of Garza and Obrzedy. #makemasarte#illustrations#PapelPicado#Wycinanki
