Latino Heritage & Cultural Awareness Workshop with Carlos Andrés Gómez

Monday, September 25, 2017,

  • Location: Buttrick 306

What is the difference between the terms Spanish, Hispanic, Latino, Latinx?  Why are terminology and representation important?  How does your unique cultural background, however you identify, influence the way you navigate the world?  As part of VAHS' Hispanic Heritage Month 2017 programming, award-winning poet and speaker Carlos Andrés Gómez will guide the group in this interactive workshop open to participants of all backgrounds through a dynamic discussion about culture and social identity, beginning with his own and bridging it to those of others. 

The workshop will be followed by a spoken word performance and speech by Carlos Andrés Gómez, known for his viral poems "What does Hispanic look like?" and "Where are you really from?" at 7pm at Sarratt Cinema.
