Los Pobres Artistas (The Poor Artists) strive to break down boarders and unite people and communities through art. Their murals draw upon collective memory and aim to find a balance between our ancestry and respect for their surrounding community. The group of six artists came together through a series of projects that were coordinated through La Peña Cultural Center. Their first project was a mural and exhibition for an event commemorating the anniversary of the military coup in Chile. After completing this project the artists decided to continue working together under the name Los Pobres Artistas. They are a group of Chilean muralists living and working in the Bay Area. Their work is revolutionary and community oriented.
La Peña has a long history of participation in place-making and mural projects. Their historical “Song of Unity” mural is a true landmark in the East Bay, and is a vivid reminder that our cultural work is founded on a multitude of voices raised in songs of struggle, of movement and social change.La Peña will act as an activity hub during the festival. They are also supporting through grant administration, project coordination, space for the arts workshops, materials storage, publicity and promotion, documentation and video, evaluation plans, production management and networking.
YSA youth will work with the muralists from the research and design stage up through the completion of the murals. This partnership will coordinate training for young people who are interested in a career in the arts, because it is an opportunity to work closely with working artists and to learn about how a mural comes into fruition. YSA will train teens to conduct assessment surveys with the target communities and work with the lead artists in developing concepts for the murals.
Caleb Duarte and Sister Anne Carrabino will lead the month long marginalized youth development and training workshops, providing leadership training to youth and the developing media program at Fremont High. In the three months of mural workshops the youth will research, design, and execute a mural around the theme of migration.
