In Plain Sight: Building a Message SPOTS OPEN

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

A multi disciplinary team of creatives- Cassils, rafa esparza, Cristy Michel, PJ Raval, Set Hernandez Rongkilyo, Lina Sravastava, Rebecca Lichtenfeld, Farihah Zaman, and Matthew Dunnerstick- will present In Plain Sight. A large scale multifaceted performance that addresses the current migrant detention crisis, the work brings together visual artists, writers, filmmakers, activists and organizers to collaborate on a film, an organizing movement, and a day of action. They have enlisted 80 artists from around the USA and beyond to bring visibility to 80 different detention centers across the country through a monumental nation-wide media campaign with the capacity of reaching millions. At this session FFC delegates will get to learn about the team's strategies and goals as well as contribute initial ideas that will help highlight the proximity of the general American public to the hundreds of migrant internment camps in each state, hiding in plain sight.
