What happens when you leave behind everything that created your sense of identity and start over? How do you explore and express those feelings? When words fail, art steps in to help. Share in the stories of Christ Church Cathedral’s immigrant congregants through visual and performing arts.
When leaving behind the touchstones of family and culture, immigrants are challenged to forge a new identity in their adopted home, blending past with present. Second generation immigrants who do not have the same connection to “home,” must also bridge the expectations of older generations with the expectations of their new culture.
Understandably, this can be hard to articulate to someone unfamiliar with the experience. Art has a way of expressing thoughts and feelings that are hard to put into words. This gathering will showcase art and music created by Hispanic immigrants who call Christ Church Cathedral their spiritual home.
This event is bilingual, presented in English and Spanish and features performing arts group Coro Latinoamericano among others.
A partnership between Christ Church Cathedral, Arte Mexicano de Indiana, and LUNA Language Services.
