Funding brings this hour-long program featuring a half-hour documentary, Compadre Huashayo, produced by PBS with Latin Grammy composer Gabriela Frank and multi Emmy-winning videographer, Aric Hartvig to Connecticut audiences this fall. The film features insights into South American, Indigenous, and Afro-Ecuadorian music as a unifying force for cultural identity and social justice. Post-screening, participants will join a guided discussion and see live and/or virtual performances showcasing Indigenous/Andean instruments featured in the film.

The exhibition shows how acts of erasure can subvert notions of authority and rewrite history, examining relationships between the erasure of text through cross-out, redaction, and white-out and the erasure of bodies through policy, norms, and violence. Programs/outreach center marginalized individuals and communities – LGBTQ+, POC, indigenous peoples, women, people w/ disabilities. With many points of entry via the humanities, the show is profoundly relevant to today’s socio-political issues and is on view from September 2019 to January 2020.
