Colabora con Eileen Jimenez (Ñätho) un artista IndigiQueer para crear obras de arte que reflejen nuestras experiencias y relaciones con la tierra y la alegría indígena a través del linograbado. Durante este taller practicaremos el grabado a partir de bloques pretallados y la acuarela para cocrear arte.

Artiest Bio: Eileen’s mother is Maria Cruz, her grandmother is Eloisa, and her great grandmother is Isidora, matriarchs of the Ñätho (Otomi Peoples). As an Indigenous leader, community member, educator and as an artist, everything she does and creates is influenced by her many intersecting identities and lived experiences. She creates the art, the structures, the programming and the educational experiences she wishes she and her community would have seen and had access to growing up. Eileen uses linocut and mixed-media techniques to develop her own ways of telling stories in the complex layers that they exist in, as well as to demonstrate the ways that we are connected to the Land and to each other.
