Starting off Velocity’s Next Fest Northwest Festival, Speakeasy Series: El Norte started our conversation about the New West with a look to the Old West and to Mexican-American and Latino-American artists working in our community. Dance artists Nancy Blanco and Fausto Rivera hosted this performance, talk, and community conversation, with a film screening by Rodrigo Valenzuela. View the footage of the speakeasy event, and help us continue online the discussion centered on artists of the Latino diaspora and their impact/experience on the undeniably shifting culture of our city.
