Latinx Theatre Commons Conference
July 11 @ 8:00 am - July 14 @ 5:00 pm
FIU Theatre will host the 2019 Latinx Theatre Commons Conference. Events will take place at FIU’s Wertheim Performing Arts Center, Miami Beach Urban Studios, and MANA Wynwood.
LatinX Theatre Commons is a movement which advocates for Latina/o/x theater as a vital, significant presence in the field. We are a think tank, a lobbying network and a resource. We create nationally recognized events and sustain an online platform—Cafe Onda—that celebrate our diverse connections as well as promote the quality and the quantity of our work. We honor our past with reflection and envision our future with optimism and enthusiasm. We foster emergent national leadership through an organic organizing method of activating our existing networks and expanding our circles of connection. We cultivate our collective wisdom through conscious conversation and conscientious community. We promote the breadth of Latina/o/x theater across the nation. Our work is many-faceted both in its ethnic and cultural diversity, as well as in its content and aesthetic. We therefore continually call into question and seek to explore how we and the rest of the theatre-making community define Latinidad.
