LUSH: A SOMArts Series launches on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. The first of three virtual programs, this event features readings, a panel discussion, and Q&A with Juli Delgado Lopera, author of Fiebre Tropical, and Elaine Castillo, author of America is Not the Heart, two Bay Area novelists whose writing reflects diasporic and queer life in the US today, moderated by Claire Calderón.
LUSH: A SOMArts Series draws inspiration from Solarpunk, a genre that imagines futures that reject dystopian narratives, instead favoring visions of sustainability and interconnection. LUSH asks us how we, as artists, curators, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and activists, can create a future where we are thriving in abundance?
Closed captioning will be provided during the virtual stream
