Contra-Cuentos Women Living Borders


Free Event tonight! 7:30-9:30pm at NYU.

Contra-Cuentos (Counter Narratives)

The stories of immigrant women often go ignored by mainstream media. This event acts to counter that. In Contra-Cuentos (Counter Narratives) we invite immigrant women of color to share their stories and talents and express those narratives the way they see fit.

“Contra-Cuentos: Women Living Borders” features the art of a diverse group of immigrant women identifying artists. Through dance, poetry, painting, spoken word, film, and literature, these artists create dialogues about the intersections between art, gender, activism, race, culture, and identity.

Join us to hear from the artists themselves as they display and perform their work.
