“Warren, thank you for coming and letting us spread the word about this beautiful event. Having experienced this for the past two years and being able to perform is one of the greatest things ever. I live and breathe poetry so being here and performing as an Indigenous woman is everything and you made that happen. Thank you.” -Emily Jaramillo (16), GJ Youth Producer
“Warren – thank you so much for empowering Indigenous youngsters and folks! It was an honor to meet you and learn more about your story as well as RezArtx! I hope to see you there!” -Lily Luchau (15), GJ Youth Producer
“Warren! It was so great to have you on the show. RezArtx is such a cool event that I’m sure so many people are looking forward to. Art has always been so important to Indigenous people so I’m really happy to see that it still is. Thank you.” -Kenia Alonzo (17), GJ Media Justice Intern
“Thank you both Warren and Jaclyn, for sharing such a beautiful conversation with me. It was an absolute honor to share your incredible work with our community! I really believe in the power of utilizing art as a means of understanding ourselves, our culture, and this land. I look forward to your event in June and I am eager to hear about the future of RezArtX.” -Edgar Cruz, GJ Media Justice InternWe are less than two-weeks away from an “all indigenous” kind of day. June 8th – don’t miss out on #RezArtX at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Organizers of this festival style event recently hit Generation Justice for an on the air interview. What you see above are thanks from the staff/crew of the show. We are inspired by their kind words; this is what #RezArtX is all about – creating capacity, connecting communities, showcasing the importance of indigenous art and artists, while pushing to sustain an environment where we can all create and be proud of what is produced.
These young engineers and producers were kind and generous with their space and we simply cannot thank them enough. Stay tuned as we continue to announce all the wonderful things that are coming your way by way of this indigenous arts experience. Got your tickets yet? If not, get them at www.rezartx.com.
Also – head out on June 6th, to the pre-party at Mezcal Tequileria. It will be quite the time. Tickets will be sold at the door and all proceeds go to the artists performing and producing this year’s blast! See you there!”
