The AoCC will host an intimate gathering, creating space for immigrant performing artists to share personal stories, cuisine, reflections and resources with the community in an effort to form lasting bonds and cultivate relationships to each other and local art organizations.

Invited participants will guide a conversation on the struggles of immigration and the effects on the body in the performance practice while tasting tapas and small appetizers from various cuisines.

Food sharing is a universal form of expressing fellowship. "Immigrants for immigrants: taste of home" is an opportunity to create a platform to support each other and grow as a community.

LOCATION UPDATE: This workshop will be held at Movement Research, 122 Community Center (150 First Avenue) in the second floor studio. 122 Community Center is a fully ADA compliant facility.

Organizing Artists: Christopher Unpezverde Núñez, Lisa Parra, Naomi Elena Ramirez, Raha Behnam, Rina Casero Espiritu, Remi Harris

Participants: Alicia Ehni, Maira Duarte, Richard Morales, Vanessa Vargas
