We are a vibrant cultural center who curates and hosts gatherings and events that support social justice movements; and center Black, Indigenous, Latinx, LGBTQIA, and women of color culture leaders.  

Locally, we partner with Equality Arizona, Aliento AZ, ReFrame Youth Arts Center, Mass Liberation AZ, and No More Deaths to offer support for place-based organizations to build leadership and serve those most marginalized.

As an art center, we work with artists of color dedicated to racial and migrant justice, including Manu Chao, Ana Tijoux, Olmeca, Shining Soul, Hojarasca, Logan Phillips, Los Cambalache, Entre Mujeres,and Simon Ortiz.

CULTURAL KITCHENS

We believe sharing a meal with new friends can feed a person’s soul, as well as their hunger. Community members, staff members and guests come together to share stories, learn histories and share food.

FILM NIGHTS

Each month we feature a film directed by a BIPOC artist that grapples with socially engaged subject matter. We invite local scholars and activists to share their understanding of the film’s themes and message and the ways they connect to Arizona / US politics.
