DEADLINE TO APPLY: Monday, May 21, 2012
This year’s Summer Institute will be hosted at the University of California Santa Barbara, July 18-21, 2012. MALCS, in collaboration with the UCSB site committee, seeks performers for the Summer Institute’s Noche de Cultura, Friday, July 20th whose act reflects the values of MALCS and this year conference’s theme, “Todos somos Arizona: Confronting the Attack on Difference.” The national anti-immigrant and anti-Chicana/o Latina/o legislation speaks to the continued fear of difference within the United States. Difference across race, genders, sexualities, abilities, religions, national origins, languages, and other social identities continues to draw attacks against our communities. The institute’s theme is inspired by organizations such as “Todos Somos Arizona,” a solidarity group that seeks to counter Arizona’s oppressive legislation.
MALCS invites self-identified Women of Color/Indigenous performers/artists, and/or collectives to submit. The chosen performers will be compensated for their time and travel, as well as gain publicity from promotional materials for the conference. Please inquire by Monday, May 21, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, address, email, phone number, short bio (200 words max), title of performance (if applicable), and video (if possible). For more information, email email@example.com.
